But I'm looking for advice to do all this
Hey, The frame is original, 2wd b2200 space cab. Adding the chevy power train needed a crossmember added to hold the 700r in, so fabricating the crossmember to the frame took some time. Home made engine mounts starting with the 4.3 original mounts. Chevy swap would be so much easier to do and you'll have alot more power. Also depends on the t-case you want to use, drivers side or pass side, consider your front axle pumpkin drop side with the t-case and axle combination. Take a early 90's 4.3 from an astro van or jimmy. Wiring it up is also a huge task, unless you go carburated. Good luck with the build!
