Donor F250 5spd

Ok so I have A friend that has a truck for sale complete everything 97 SCLB 5spd manual 4x4 for sale thinking about Swaping everything from e40d to the 5spd donor truck runs great just has a dented wrecked body that I don't mind scrapping and reverse syncro is stripped bad he says its a 400 dollar fix i can just swap every thing I need and sell the rest get the 5spd fixed and new clutch and rebuild kit. The guy wants 1600 bucks for everything should I jump on this deal??? Makes sense to me to be all over this like white on rice since my e4od is crapping out on me and I don't want to spend a small fortune on a rebuilt or new one. Should I go for it ?

U said it b4 i did... even if u were torn between a 5 speed and auto, look at the cost of the auto and the deal u have in front of u where u will end up with a free transmission. And u will be guaranteed to have every part u need by having the whole truck

I've purchased a junk (junk as in just hit a deer and dented the hood) Superduty for $1000. Came out even after I robbed all the parts off of it.
