Then... If you want it to sit low.. You can zee the frame rails while your at it..

So by doing a new frame you can get a lot of good things from doing it new... Back to it's all in what you want from it.. The list can go on and on..

If your looking to put a nice motor and like the look of a box frame... The truck frame is so easy to just use tubing to do the frame,, Straight runs.. Very easy to do... If your not looking to Zee the frame any..
I'm with you if you want all that, heck yes making a new one would be easier. That is one of the great lies about frame swapping, that frame was SOOOOOOO simple, it had such basic shape. You could make it very easily, even a first timer could make one easier than swapping in a modern frame that is way more complex in shape.
