Hello I'm NEW to 3500HD forum.

Have a pretty clean 82 Chevy CC Dually with an 6.2 Diesel 4 spd. mine is a 2WD IFS set-up.

Was wondering .... is it possible to SLIDE a complete 3500 HD chassis under my Chevy CC ??

That would be the easiest I think ?? Or used the 3500HD front "straight Axle" suspension stuff and "fab" all the mounts etc....

I want to put a 5.9 12V Cummins in my Chevy CC.

Any suggestion on the "braking"  I want to have the 4 wheel disc set-up for my CC.

Has anybody did a similar conversion ??

Thanks in advance for any help /suggestions.

Welcome! With enough motivation ANYTHING is possible, motivation and $$$. Unfortunately 80s Chevy and 90s Chevy cab mounts are not positioned the same. The rear of the 80s cab mounts would be easy to accomplish with just adding a crossmember to the frame because they are located between the frame rails. The front cabs will need adjusting as will the radiator support. It's actually a somewhat easy fab compared to your future Cummins swap. This being said while assuming the HD frame is from a crew cab. Very cool project though!!
