Not an easy swap. It CAN be done, but you'll need engine, mounts, trans, trans crossmember, PCM, wiring harnesses, cluster,etc,etc,etc,etc.
Basically, you need a donor truck to take EVERYTHING from.

im in the process of swap'n the v6 over to the 5.4, ive had my v6 since 99, done every thing i could to it and it still not what im looking for, yeah you get raged hard with a v6 truck but it will smoke a gt in a heart beat if you do it right, alot of money and time also needs to be invested in it. its my time to swap, but in my case i have a whole truck to just swap, mines a 99 that i will keep, but i i hate the PAT's system so im dropping years and swapping with a 98 5.4, alot less head ach, so in which im going to use all the parts that i can, cluster, harness, ecu and all that i can. i plan on it taking about two weeks to finnish due to a nagging job and a head ach of a girlfriend but its what ever.

In my opinion, for the effort involved, unless you want so bragging rights, you are better off selling the truck you have and buying the truck you want.
