Want to convert f250 to f350 drw

Hi all, new to diesels and new to the forum so I hope I put this in the right place; I know if anyone can help you guys can. I have a 95 PSD, xtr cab, 4x4, long bed, auto with a 4.10 rear end. I bought the truck with camping in mind; I've spent some time on the RV net and most recommend a drw for a truck camper. Is it feasible to find a wrecked 95 drw 350 with a 4.10 and put the bed, axel, springs, shocks and rims on the f250 frame or am I over simplifying things?

I did that exact thing when I worked at Denver Ford a few years ago, It's a straitforward swap, complete rear end and bed went on without a problem.

7.3, Auto., 4x4, 6637, Straight Piped Stock Exhaust, WW, Foilgone.

awesome

Thanks for the quick reply, this gets me motivated. What type of cost did you incure? Any hidden problems? I used to live and work in Idaho Springs back in the 80's. Went back there in June of this year and boy have things changed.
