Independent rear suspension on an f-100, can it be done?

Has anyone ever put a independent rear suspsension on a pickup, and if so how was it done? I have a 96 thunderbird that I am going to use the engine and seats, and many other parts from. But it seems a waste to leave and independant rear under it when it could be put to good use. Am I crazy?

No, not crazy...it can be done. hope it's not a full size pickup, as that rear probably won't be wide enough. Also, you would have to beef up the springs, as the pickup is heavier and designed to take a load.
