They are 2 different generation trucks, the 97 being a gmt400, and the 02 being a gmt800.

They will be very different in almost every way. I've seen gmt800 beds on gmt400's so the beds might be close, but even if you did get the body to mount up, the electrical would be a nightmare

frame swap 00 GMC Sierra single cab on Tahoe rolling chassis

Postby SirKingBee » Mar 30 2020, 8:28am

I've got a 2001 Chevy Tahoe 2x4. I am going to pull the body off it and put my 2000 GMC Sierra 2x4 body onto the Tahoe frame. Any concerns from the experts that would help me prior to beginning?
Thank you to all who answer.
