swapping a 04 6.0 into a 99 350.

So I crashed my 04 F250 this weekend. Im pretty bummed. The truck runs aweome. I just did a new oil cooler, egr delete and coolant filter setup. Id really like to find another truck to swap it into. I have a shop and every tool you can imagine at my finger tips. My qustion is, will an 04 6.0 engine, trans and harness fit in an older truck. The truck im looking at is a 99 350 gas V10. I know ill have to do fuel tanks and lines. Im not worried about what i have to swap as long as everything will fit. Im curious about engine cradles and fire walls mostly. Thanks for any advice and comments. Oh i have a full 5" exhaust that needs to fit also. This is gonna be a project but the truck is cheap an my 6.0 is paid off.

I'd look for a truck that had a diesel in it to start with. It'll be an easier swap and a stronger frame.

Got questions about your 6.0?

Are you sure about the frame part? Springs are probably soft, but I don't see ford making a separate frame for gas superduty's compared to the diesel frames. Not disagreeing, just looking for evidence.

The truck is smashed kinda high. I can swap everything suspension wise also. Im just wondering if its been done and if there are big differences between the fire walls of 99 350's vs. an 04 250. Ive done a swap with a chevy 6.5 into a truck that had a 454. ran pretty good same year trucks though. I think im just gonna go for it. I have way more time then money. My 5" mbrp showed up and i wanna here her run again.

I don't think they are even different underwood wise so I think you will be ok. I'm 99% sure the frame from a v10 to 7.3 is the same, I wouldn't doubt if the 6.0 motor mounts bolted right in, but I don't know anyone who has tried it so what do I know???.......let us know what happens

Swap the body to the 6.0 frame.

Got questions about your 6.0?

X2 if the motor is in damaged And the frame is intact simply switch the body. Much much easier process then taking everything off your truck. The only way I see this not working is unless the body's are different as in the older truck is a long bed, cab difference, etc. If the cabs the same and the beds different, look for a bed.

Both trucks are the same, extra cab short bed. I think the frame may be a little bent on the 6.0. I would think a cab swap would be easier but i would still need to swap the harnesses and cluster and most stuff from inside. Im gonna go get another look at the truck before i buy it. Really inspect it first. Should be an interesting project either way.

If the frame is bent, and you do the motor swap, you will want to swap front springs too. Someone mention the fuel tank but they are the same although you will want to make sure it's perfectly clean. Not sure about the fuel lines although I would swap them to avoid having any gas residue in the lines anyways. The frame should not be an issue.
