frame lengths?

so im thinking about doing a body swap on my rig and i want to find an f150 extended cab short bed donor and putting the body on my reg cab. one would assume that they would be the same length right? 2 extra feet on the cab and 2 less feet of bed? with the obvious relocation of body mounts. looking for some extra opinions before taking the plunge. thanks in advance

Your reg cab long bed is a 133 wb and a super cab short bed is 138in wb it would be a huge pita I would rather shorten a sclb or find a scsb donor
