Longbed into a shortbed ext. cab?

I know this is kinda stupid but.... Is it possible to take the bed and cab from an extended cab ranger and put it on a reg cab long bed ranger? Cause my ranger's got a 7' bed and I'm not a fan of longbeds. I think it looks kinda weird but I can't complain, it's a ranger :D But yeah.... any ideas or opinions on that? I know you'd have to move the mount holes and all, but is would it be possible?


Or is the wheelbase not long enough on a reg cab long bed to do that?

Nope, The frame has an upward bend after the cab that would not allow for this.

So much for that idea. It probally would be easier/cheaper to just get a different truck anyway.
