That's a hard question to answer in a few sentences. You will probably have to fabricate the required motor mounts. You might have to also remove the existing frame mounts. Aside friom that, you might be able to scrounge up the mounts that match your existing isolaters, (the pieces with the rubber that attach to the block) at the local wrecking yard and install those. The other option is to fabricate what you need. Place your engine (and trans attached) on blocks between the frame rails. At this point you can make all your calculations and measurements, making sure of ALL your clearances. At this point you have to decide on desired ride height (wheels and tires). Make cardboard mockups and built from scrap material. I can help you with the design if you need. Take picures, lots of them, on all the details.

Hope this helps you out with your question.

Jesus God, this swap is a no-brainer. Those trucks came with FE/FT engines. You'll need the bellhousing with the motor mounts. I have one in Boise. And you'll need the front engine mounts. I have some of that front motor mount hardware, but not all of it.

There's no reason to use the side mounts, just find the right bellhousing and the right timing cover/front dress.
