It's been done in a dakota with major mods, usually they choose a 3/4 - 1 ton chassis for this swap. I would say it's kinda like a big block swap. Standard crap applies.......make the exhaust fit, complete computer swap from the original truck, the engine harness, trans harness, gotta see if the fuel pump pressure can hold up? Maybe even a fuel tank swap, I don't know about the front suspension on a 1500........the weight shouldn't be too drastic from a v8 to a v10?, I bet that trans for the v10 is totally differ from the v8 one and has a HUGE cooler, fab some engine mounts or just buy them. I've seen guys swap in a turbo cummins deisel into a gas 4x4 truck was pretty bad ass. Would be a cool unique project. Good luck
