It's not going to be simple, mounts will have to be made, possibly moving some of the cross members to make things fit properly. It will be quite a project.

Thank you, how about the sensors like the abs the tranny radiator lights


ABS. Those will have to be transferred to the axles, you may have to put on ones for a 3/4 ton to get them to fit. TRANNY, mounts custom made, RADIATORS, is part of the core support on the body, LIGHTS, those are part of the body and will stay with the body, you will have to reroute them though.
