different = expensive. If you got the cash and can deal with the down time, go for it.

your swap is gonna cost you roughly as much as the truck itself

you go girl!

i would say it isn't worth it. The time and effort and money is going to outweigh the results. The tranny alone would be a serious PITA. I advise against it.
