Swaping half my frame.

Hello, apparently i may have posted on this site before. Sorry ive had some medical issues that messed with my memory. My question is this. My 87, extra cab 44 frame is rusted out (nuttin new to younz im sure) i have a newer modle tacoma frame frim about the middle of the door back, if i cut my 87 frame and get my old front half attached to the newer back half successfully is their any other issues that might give me problems? I know the springs are different and for some reason yota broke with tradition the newer truck had the gas tank filler lid on the wrong side ( I E the drivers side which i can fix no problem) but what about the two back cab mounts and the bed mounts, whell base and so forth? Do any of you all know? Plus i know where theirs a good whole frame for a 92 extra cab but its a 2 wheel drive. What kinda differences am i looking at if i go that way as far as installing my four wheel front drive train parts? Which way would be easiest and best for me to go please? Thanks!

Without a frame jig

Without a frame builders jig I expect the odds of successfully completing any of those without tracking issues are very low..
