The entire drive-train minus the engine, plus the entire suspension would need to be changed. Tires would also need changing. This is possible, but a very daunting task. You would need to have a donor truck in order the acquire all the parts necessary. Otherwise the cost would be in the thousands of dollars. I would suggest you sell the 2wd truck you have and purchase a 4wd.

Is a 1987 Chevy truck frame 2 wheel drive same as 1985 Chevy truck 4x4?

It depends on the frame, if the frame on 4 by 4 is a 3/4 ton and the one on the 2 wheel is 1/2 ton then no they are not the same. The 4 by 4 is more heavy duty and can haul more. If you wanted to use the 4 by 4 with the 1987 Chevy truck than you will have to do some modifying because the 4 by 4 frame has 4 wheel drive. In most cases no you cant use a 4 by 4 frame for a 2 wheel drive truck. If you made the 1987 a 4 by 4 than you could use it.

What is the difference in a R10 R20 V10 and a V20 1988 Chevy suburban?

The numbers on truck models refer to the weight rating. Ford F100/F150/F250/F350, Dodge D100/1500/D200/2500/D300/3500, Chevy 10/1500/20/2500/30/3500. The "F" in ford models just means FORD and the "D" in Dodge models just means DODGE. The 1's series (10,100,150,1500) means that the truck is rated ½ Ton, the 2's series (20,200,250,2500) means the truck is rates for ¾ Ton, and 3's series (30,300,350,3500) means that the truck is rated for 1 Ton. For pre 1987 Chevy trucks there was the "C" line and the "K" line. The "C" line means the truck is a Two Wheel Drive (4x2) and the "K" means that the truck is a Four Wheel Drive (4x4). In 1987 they started using the "V" line and the "R" line. The "R" line means the truck is a Two Wheel Drive (4x2) and the "V" means that the truck is a Four Wheel Drive (4x4). C/R10 = ½ Ton 4x2 (Two Wheel Drive) K/V10 = ½ Ton 4x4 (Four Wheel Drive) C/R20 = ¾ Ton 4x2 (Two Wheel Drive) K/V20 = ¾ Ton 4x4 (Four Wheel Drive)
