yes the cab should fit , you will probably have to swap out all the wiring under the dash.

Yea a 150 cab will work just swap out wiring and ur dash as long as the model years are close. Just got done puttin a 93 150 ext. cab on 96 250 worked out pretty well except we swapped interior so we had to make holes for the seats to mount. Wiring and such was simple.

just go really slow and careful when you lift the thing, we did a similar thing last year only it was a 86 250 and a 91 350(different generations but it worked) and we missed a few wires and they snapped.

It will work with some fab... Put the cab on, and chop the 8ft bed down to size.

There is a 6 inch difference in the lengths of a standard cab long bed and an extended cab short bed. RCLB is 133" wheelbase, and an ECSB is 139" wheelbase.

But A Guy I know did this to his Reg cab long bed...
BEFORE:


AFTER:


Then this... lol:


All the same truck.
