Possible....Yah.....I guess. Anything is possible. It might be less costly to buy a brand new truck though.

That just seems like an electrical nightmare

i believe the motor mounts will be slightly off so u would have to make a custom set, same with the tranny cross member and then have someone make a driveshaft. be less cost effective to have someone build u a tranny to put back in there.

Nevermind Ina Ram, why would anyone put one in anything. You know when you can bore all 8 cyl .60 over without dressing your cutting edge once how good the material in the cylinders is

Anything is possible, not everything is practical. Guys transplant engines in hot rods all day long, but its almost easier to start from scratch. In your truck, everything from the engine and transmission to the air conditioning, dash gauges, and interior lighting is controlled through the computer system. Swapping in a stone-age TBI shivvy 350 and getting all the accessories to work is going to be a complete nightmare, not to mention it'll have less power than the 4.7 when you're done and wouldn't have a prayer of passing an emission test if that's required in your area. In the end, it'll cost less to just fix the transmission. It may not be anything serious anyway.
