I am sure it would just be a wiring issue. Should be able to do it if you can figure out the wiring.

Find the wiring schematic for the inginition switch. locate the wires that would go into the starting position when the key is turned.

From there depending on how it is wired it should just involve moving the wires from the ignition start position to a push button. There for effectivly taking out the key position that starts the truck. however physically it would be there.

Easy mod to do... go lay under your rig and look at the starter.. there will be a remote wire, that wire when switched provides a 12v signal and blammo your starter engages.. basically if you want to disable the keyed start signal you can unplug that wire.
Then wire in a push button switch wherever you want, run the actived side back to where that remote wire was. It wouldn't be a bad idea to run the power through relay...
Pretty easy to figure out if you look at... you can find instructions for wiring a relay online easy.

Wouldn't be a bad idea to leave the factory wires alone though so you can always go back to the stock way. Wiring like I suggested will allow you to not touch anything other then unplugging the remote wire.

go to the solenoid for the starter and unplug the single wire. run a wire from that post back to a button then run a fused hot wired to the button. if you want to change it back then just put wire back on solenoid...
