I have a 1997 Chevy 1500 2wd but I would like to convert it to 4wd but I know that it cost a lot of money to convert from 2wd to 4wd. But the truck is special to me so I was thinking about getting a 4x4 donor truck just for the frame and do a body swap, but I was just wanting to know if I get a Chevy 2500 frame would my 1500 body still fit and function the same as when it was on the 1500 frame?

Yes the body will interchange. Cab and bed mounts will be the same.

I am actually running a 2wd 2001 2500 cab on a 2002 4wd 1500 frame. I had rolled the truck and chose to rebuild it.

The title should follow the cab, at least it does in AZ...
