I think it will be somewhat of a large job based on not having the rear cab mounts in place.

but i have access to the cab mounts off the the frame so i think i could just mount them on the frame. i have access to car lifts and welding tools and all the heavy equipment need, so thats no problem.

I really don't know the specifics to answer your question, but here's something to be wary of. Most regular cab trucks just have a one piece drive shaft but extended cab and crew cab have a two piece drive shaft. Since you're not going to change frame length, I doubt it will be an issue.
