Question Cab swap legality

This is mostly out of curiosity but could be a potential future project.

1- Would it be legal to install a '97 Dodge Ram 3500 cab on a 2010 Ram 4500/5500 frame/rolling chassis?

2- Would it still be licensable as a '97 Dodge Ram 3500 as long as the cab has a clear title in my name?

The goal would be a 2nd gen Dodge ram 3500 with a stronger frame and axles, better brakes and wide track front axle, and not have to pay commercial insurance as i would on a ram 4500/5500 due to the higher gvw.

Only asking here because I know this kind of stuff will vary from State to state. Thanks
