Is this even possible?

Well, I have a 1997 Regular cab...And I would kill for an extended cab..But I want to keep a 5-spd, I want to keep it black..

BUT

Is it possible to just like..Swap out the entire cab, and drop on an extended cab? I doubt it, but it just popped into my mind..And I know this last part is in the wrong section..But how difficult would it be to swap all my tan interior for grey/black?

Thanks for the help guys.

-Cory

Yeah..Figured that. Seemed kinda obvious to me, but I figured I should just make sure. What about the interior color swap? Maybe not swap all my tan out for grey/black, but is it difficult to paint it all? I've seen it done..But does it make everything all hard i.e. the carpet stuff on the door panels..

It's a VERY VERY involved process to pull the entire interior out and change colors... ask zabeard about it! I pulled the interior to lay down dynamat and it took a solid 3 days start to finish.
