The frames themselves are the same but the engine crossmember that is welded and riveted to the frame is different (only important if you want to use off the shelf pivot brackets for the beams) along with the added braces boxing the passenger side framerail on 4x4's ahead of the engine crossmember. It's been done and will likely be done again but is not for the faint of heart. I'm stubborn enough I'm going to attempt a full width TTB swap on an '00 Explorer, we'll see how that goes next year...
