More trouble than it's worth. You have to shorten the frame ahead of the front wheels so your fender wells will line up. You have to get a different driveshaft. Gas lines, brake lines, wires, etc.
Far wiser to sell the one you have and buy the one you want.

No I don't believe it will as the frame/ wheel base is different. to check measure from the front of the bed to the bolts in the bed. This will let you know.

How do I remove the bed from 2000 F250 Super Duty quad cab diesel short bed? I need to change the fuel sending unit in the fuel tank and think removing the bed may be easier than the fuel tank.


Removing the bed is in no way easier than just dropping the fuel tank, and the fuel tank was designed to easily be dropped down from the vehicle. Who ever told you that removing the bed was the easier way is certainly not an auto technician or even a mechanic.

Change brake light bulb on a 2000 Nissan Frontier


The entire bed line will need to be removed. The long screws that hold the metal bracet where the bed extender attaches also hold the tail light assembly in place.
I pulled the bed liner up at a 45 degree angle and layed it on top of the cab. This revealed the screws. Take both screws out and lay to the side along with the metal bracket for the bed extender.
Now firmly grab the edges of the tail light assembly and pull...there are 2 hard rubber nipples that snap in to hold the assembly. You will feel like you might break it but you won't..just pull straight back hard. The assembly will "POP" out and then you can just twist the back of each bulb there are (3) and pull out..now you will see the bulbs..just pull the bad bulb straight out and push the new one into place. Now just reassemble. Total time will be 30-45 min. for this repair.

Need to put a new bed on 1991 pick up how hard is this?


You need to remove the fuel filler tube, disconnet the harnesses that hook to the taillamps, the license plate lamps and any other wiring. Spray penetrating oil around the bed bolts before you remove them. Undo the bolts & have people help you lift the bed off. Not a "hard" job, but a rather heavy type of job. I commonly pull the beds whenever I am changing the fuel tank sending unit.
