Suburban body on 3/4 ton truck

Im new here so please bare with me. I have a 2003 1500 4x4 suburban with blown motor. I want to build a Duramax Suburban. Since I don’t have a 3/4 ton sub I want to put my body on 2500 truck frame. I’m sure it has been ask a million times but I can’t seem to find it.

1) what is the best donor truck/chassis to accomplish a suburban body Marriage with least amount of mods ... reg, ext, cc and lb or sb.

2) I know that the truck and suburban frames are different Im just not sure how much modification is necessary. Ex body mounts, frame extending/shortening or body lift.

2500 Suburban...

If you are buying a new frame, might as well be the right one.

Not worth the trouble just find a 2500 or at the very least find a frame. The 1500 will work once you add the missing welded nuts for a couple body mounts if I'm not mistaken
