3500HD crew cab conversion.
« on: April 22, 2013, 10:32:46 PM »
Hello I Have a 2000 C3500 Crew Cab dually with the 6.5TD that i am getting ready to  swap entire body over to a 2000 3500HD frame. I just bought the frame yesterday, The frame is complete minus the 6.5TD The HD is a regular cab with a 16 foot flat bed on it. I would like to know from anyone that has done this what obstacles I will need to overcome and what am i getting in to. ANY help would be greatly appreciated.
