Frame Length on 3500 Dually vs 2500 extended cabs

Hello everyone. I am curious if the frame length is the same on an extended cab 2500HD vs an extended cab 3500HD dually? I have been pondering a different project, I guess just to be different. I have been thinking about converting my 3/4ton LLY over to a 1ton. I'd purchase the dually rear axle, bed, 1 ton springs, torsion bars, etc. I have access to a lot of that stuff at a pretty cheap price. But I was curious if I did go that route would the bed line up with my current frame length.
Thanks

No diff in length of dually. Only thing that matters is type of cab and what size bed.

My ECLB is 9 inches shorter overall than same year CCLB dually. But that's because EC versus CC. And I "believe" my ECLB is 9 inches longer than the same year CCSB. Going off memory of when I shopped trucks in 2005.

As jmlloar said "Only thing that matters is type of cab and what size bed."

Democrats: abolish ICE... free health care for illegals... make it easy for illegals who cross to stay... give illegals the right to vote... adamantly oppose building a secure border... create "sanctuary cities"... grant illegals in the country amnesty... welfare for illegals... tip off illegals about ICE raids.
And we're supposed to believe that Democrats aren't for open borders simply because they say so?

When it comes to duallys, it's not the length that's different. It's the girth.
