Willys truck on a willys wagon frame????

Can you put a willys truck on a willys wagon frame? What are the diffrences between the two. This is my first willys truck and I am having having problems figuring out what frame to use. I have seen a lot of conversions in my search but a lot of them don't look right and I want to make sure that I am starting in the right directions so Please any help would be great.

There are those who know more than I do, but I would recommend you check the wheel base numbers. I think you will find the wagon is much too short.

The Truck is much longer than the wagon. I have two trucks right now, flat grills. I decided to work with the frame I have (almost no rust) and strengthen it.

Is my build. I don't post here often because I don't want to get roasted like Charlie Sheen.

The bed on the willys truck is ungainly long. I shortened mine by 10 inches, but it could stand to be shortened a little more and still look OK. IIRC the diff between the wagon and truck frames is small enough that that you could take it out of the bed ( I measured mine at somewhere around 7') and make it look right.

The truck rear axle and frame is nearly a foot wider than a wagon and the front end of the pick up.
