The frame is not a reliable ground. There is no dedicated ground wire from it to the battery, only to the engine and the engine mounts mostly insulate the engine from the frame. Some that have tried to use it as a ground have ended up with electrical components that sometimes did not work. I would suggest running a separate ground wire.
