But would rather make a post and get all the information at once. what do i all have to do to make the 6bt fit in this truck i understand the suspension and drive train need to be upgraded. but where can i get motor mounts that will mount right up to this frame without making them and what tranny should i run prefer auto that can take a beating that aint 1000 to buy at a salvage yard but a 5 speed is okey. and how much other parts for the drive train will i need
Count me in for the buildup. There's a pair of good writeups by two different guys on FSB - and I think both double posted the threads here on FTE. Look up the build threads by gos and AmericanThunder over on FSB and here.
Both did very clean, thorough writeups on how they pulled it off. gos' is on a newer chassis, though. AmericanThunder did his on a dentside, so that might be more appropriate for your experience.
