    Hi there looking for some information I have a 1999 9370 with a double frame and the frame is junk the truck only has 500k original miles on it and I really like the truck. That being said I found a 1999 9200 with set back axle with a mint condition frame and interior that is identical to mine. My question is can I convert that frame into a set forward axle and put my hood on it? I can’t find any information on line about it. Any help would be much appreciated.

    That's going to be a lot of work.
    It's 50 hours shop time just to do put a new frame on an old truck. Your looking at more like 100 hours plus the axle reconfigure.
    Just buy a new frame.

    What part of your frame is junk, it may be easier to splice them together.

    It’s double framed and the two are separating throughout the whole frame.

    Got to love rust. Is it doubled all the way under the cab to the front springs?
