LWB vs SWB The last 12in of frame..

I have a 1971 SWB that has some rust and also where someone had welded a bumper onto the frame.
Is it possible to take the last 12in off of a LWB frame and splice it in?
Are the LWB and SWB rear frame sections the same?

As far as I know, the two frames are the same out back except the long frame is 8" longer on the ends. I think what you would have to do is cut 8" straight off the back of the LWB frame, and then from there you could use 12" from the long frame and splice it into the short frame.

I just need to find one and see if i can cut and splice in the last little bit on my frame.. When they welded the frame they destroyed it on the end..

Yes as long as both are C10 frames, K10 and C20 on up have different frame size and thickness.
