** The Suburban has extra body mounts that you will not find on the half-ton pickup frame otherwise they are the same from my understanding. **

Chevron, most likely your question has been appropriately answered, above.

In future posts, please consider posting the year of your truck.

On the 67-72 suburbans, the frame is the same as a long box version from what I’ve read. Wheelbase of 137”

Are the rear cab mounts on a Suburban (behind the front seats area) the same as the Pickup?
