Making an Ext Cab in to a Crew Cab ???

Ok here is a thought guys can I put a crew cab on an extended cab frame? I would say yes I no that I will have to do something different with my box. I no sell the extended cab and get a crew. But can it be done what about the cab mounts and so on.

Right now I have a 96 long box extend cab. So I was think that I might be able to put a short box with a crew cab.

Any body or am I out there on this one.

There was a website/book when I work for a fiberglass company that made box for the cab chassis to get dims and stuff. And for the life of me I can't remember what that book/website was called. That what I need it had every thing in it.

Okay guys, I picked up a complete crew cab today for parts, or (hopefully) to swap onto my extended cab long bed. Has anyone done this to a Ford or do I have to be the guinea pig? I swapped a '94 extended cab onto an '85 long bed toyota frame, and that was pretty straight forward, I'm hoping this will be too.

Is an extension of the frame possible? perhaps keep the long box and add the crew cab? Seems like a lot of work, but possible none the less.

I don't want to extend my frame, just bob the front of the bed or build a flatbed. Should still be about 7' long.

Extended cab LB and CC SB have the same wheelbase.
