No offense pardner but just by your questions you really need to do some reading. Get any one of the many books on "how to rebuild the small block chevy" or anything like that. You can find loads of info on the web and you can do a search on this forum...just hit search and type in "383 chevy build" or any combination of that.

If the 350 in your truck hasn't been bored more than .030 and it will clean up at .040 then just rebuild it. A good set of vortec heads, the right cam, intake, carb..........but you have to do some research to gather the right parts combo for a good build. Ask around where you live for a reputable machine shop, take the engine shortblock (that means w/o heads) to them and let them examine the parts. They will tell you what you need to do machining wise....and read everything you can about the SBC.

Don't know if this is what he has but Chevy/GMC made a special edition/ camper special...sometimes called a "Longhorn". The bed was 8'6" and had a vertical seam about 6" behind the front of the bed which was the bed extension. Reckon they figured that was enough to hold a 9-10" camper.

Externally a 383 SBC is exactly the same as the 350 you currently have.
