I did it when I swapped doors, but I did it the really easy way: new doors were manual, old doors were power. I simply cut the harness and taped off the ends when I removed the old doors. I did notice that the rubber grommet/tube from the a-pillar to the doors is different from trucks w/power windows/locks. The powered versions are bigger.

I'm thinking a manual crank from a donor vehicle should bolt into your pickup without any problems - though you may have to drill a hole or two. You'll need to remove the motor, which will require you to drill out the rivets. Disconnect the wiring harness. Remove the wiring harness so it's not around to get hung up . Your current window bracket should be usable but you'll need to remove the entire power regulator. Install the manual regulator and hook it up to the window bracket.
You'll need door panels for a manual crank and probably can pull these from the donor vehicle. Don't forget the window crank handles.
