    Default 96 tahoe to silverado body conversion?

    Iv got this 96 hoe thats in great shape. But iv already got a jeep grand cherokee. Wouldnt mind turning this hoe into a silverado. I figure since the body designs are so similar, chevy wouldnt stray far with the frame designs. Am I right to think this?

    If so, what can be done here? its a 2 door, 2wd hoe. What silverado bodies will work on this frame? and what all will this project entail? i figure itll be a wiriing nightmare seeing as though the hoe will have many more wires running into the body vs a truck cab.

    any input you guys have would be awesome. ill post over in the silverado subforum as well to see what theyv got to say

    i vote look for someone that would want to trade..... i believe your frame would be to short to turn it into a standard cab short box....i would think you could sell or trade easily for a silverado.. i love 2 door tahoes have always wanted one..or i vote keep it and slam it as far as you can to the ground they look pretty mean lowered
