Body on frame vehicles traditionally don't go modular like what everyone is doing with the "ONE PLATFORM, FOREVER!" thing going on right now across brands and markets with unit-body vehicles (crossovers, cars, and minivans). Although, when Nissan debuted the 2005 Frontier they claimed the platform was based on the recently new at the time 2004 Titan, admittedly pretty loosely. I just think it would be a waste of time to try and match two different vehicle class performance targets (i.e. strength and weight) with two vastly different sized vehicles that need to have vastly different capabilities. Sure, some component sharing could cut costs, but they already do that.
