Cleaning/sandblasting frame...

Long story short, I want to buy a '91 or older suburban next summer. I know it's a chevy, but I already own a Ford and I like the old suburbans.

Anyway, I will be buying one within a day's drive of the U.P. of Michigan, so this suburban will have to be found in the midwest. You can find some pretty nice ones that come up from the south for around $3500 or less. However, I would like to drive this vehicle year round so I would want the frame sandblasted and rust proofed. I am young (18), and I don't have any of the equipment to take a suburban body off the frame. I would like to have a shop remove the body and sandblast/coat the frame. I know it won't be cheap, but does anyone have a rough idea of how much this would cost (based on any knowledge you have)? If it's around $2500 or so, I can swing it; but I'm not, in any way, about to spend $6000 to have this done. I will buy a winter beater if it comes to that.
