Frame dimensions

Yeah, I know, it's a later big GMC, but I'm looking for frame dimensions for a GMC/Chevy 5500/6500 series. What I'm wanting to do, is take a used U-Haul 27' box truck (standard cab) and shorten the frame to accommodate a dually pickup bed. Anyone know where a source for this info might be? This would be for a 2000-2007 truck...

The plan is to acquire the truck without the box, unbolt the rear suspension, move it to the desired point forward on the frame, and then cut off the leftover frame length. No frame splicing or any of that! Adjust length of the brake lines, exhaust, and driveshaft. Bolt the bed on and enjoy!
