Post Frame ?
Just wondering what the differences are in the frames for 67-72 vs 73+ trucks. I am probably going to have to find a new frame, so I thought the 73+ frames might be a better option. Wondering about body mounts and suspension stuff.

thanks

73 up frames won't work unless you use a body lift. The frame kicks up under the cab instead of under the bed. You can use the front suspension to upgrade the 67-72's and the rear ends but that is about it.

The 73up frames are about 3 inchs longer too, have a buddy that just swapped a 70 to a 73 frame. It looks good and you cant tell without getting under it, he adjusted the bed to make up the difference in length.
