7.3 swap into v10 frame?

is it possible, buddy of mine crashed his truck, messes his cab up but his frame is still good. i found a 4x4 v10 truck with a bad motor, and we are thinking of using that cab and box and throwing it on my buddys frame. is it possibly to put my 7.3 in a v10 frame. then i would just swap my cab and box onto that frame and have 4wd. not sure but i think i would need a 4x4 tranny out of a diesel but not sure

I doubt it, the 7.3 weighs a lot more than the V10, but do some measurements, maybe Ford didn't produce a lighter frame for the V10 version because not as many were made? I am sure the springs are different.
