there are several articles on this swap.. spread out in the truck and truck rodding magazines.. i will see if i can spot one or two this over the next few nights...

don't forget that you can also drop something like a muncie or a T10 in.. make it 4 speeds on the tree... with a morse cable and lever to control the reverse lever...    you could also convert to 4 or 5 or perhaps even 6 on the floor...
