An auxillary overdrive unit would work, so long as you don't have the truck in 4 wheel drive with it engaged. The only problem is that the boxes become the weak link in the driveline, and if you tow a lot and/or do some spirited driving, you can expect to break it. As far as the tranny swap, anything is possible although I can forsee it being a big pain in the butt. I think the 6 speed is longer, so the tranny crossmember would have to be moved, and the driveshafts would have to be lengthened/shortened. I've thought about doing this swap in my truck, just haven't had the time or money to jump into it.
