Something you might consider when you do your body swap is to graft the floor pan of the newer truck into the cab of the older truck. The advantage is that you can leave all of the new truck body brackets on the new frame. It also gives you the option of getting some body drop (or raise) by changing the height where the new floor gets welded in relative to the old cab.
