Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

'94 box won't run a '96 truck. V10 transmission will not bolt to V8's because of a different bellhousing. 2 more cylinders mean 2 more wires for ignition so you'd need to add them, easier to get the V10 harness. Probably need heavier V10/diesel front end springs for a truck (all iron V10 - as opposed to aluminum-head Viper V10). Probably some other things, but that should be enough to discourage the swap.
