If you want something fun, but with fewer swap hassles, using a strong LS engine is hard to beat. Shoehorning in a Mopar engine doesn't seem worth it when GM has so many good engines.

4.8 and 5.3 LS swaps are common swaps in squarebody trucks because they are easy to find in the junkyard, but instead you could use something like an LS9 Corvette engine and have a more unique combination. 638 HP (LS9) or even 505 HP (LS9) in your truck would wake it up quite a bit.
