You will need to add a transfer case and front axle. Most trucks have the transfer case bolt up to the transmission so you may have to get another transmission or engineer a divorced transfer case set up which some hardcore off road guys do.

Can I bolt up a v8 transmission to my straight 6 engine.

Possibly but if you have the 300 six, I would stick with that. I hear those are great engines.
