Moving the trans rearward may require trans tunnel mods. I had to hammer mine a little to fit. Also look at the firewall area, it is tight there on the trucks.

I have no trans tunnel on the truck, just wide open space. I am thinking Lou's suggestion of slightly moving the engine forward and the trans backward is a good one. That would mean each moved less than an inch which would require fewer modifications. However, I know I am going to have to put the truck up on jackstands, pull the 727, and spend some time measuring and thinking about things before I install. I need to have a new driveshaft made, anyway.

I took advantage of my brother visiting today and swapped the bed. After having a stepside bed sitting in my yard for four or five years, I FINALLY installed it:

Still have to finish up little details like fixing a ripped out taillight mounting bolt, getting all the crossmembers installed. Getting the rear of the bed mounted to the frame, etc... but the heavy lifting is done.
