Does engine crossmember unbolt?

Looking to see if the whole front suspension and crossmember unbolts from the 2wd OBS trucks? I've got a long bed that I rebuilt the whole front end on and would like to swap it over to a short bed frame. Can it be done like the older trucks? What all am I looking at doing on it if so. Anybody have a link to if it has been documented?

It is not removable. It’s part of the frame.
