If there,s one thing I learned from Richard about trucks, it's that there were a lot of foundries manufacturing trucks to (more or less) common designs. Unless the trucks you are looking for had a significant difference in appearance from the Tahoe trucks, I wouldn't sweat the 2" difference in wheelbase! There are probably more dimensional differences in the rest of the model that you want to add the trucks to, than 2"....
Stop torturing me!
