    Not worth it you will still have a 1/2 ton frame that can't support any weight.

    Better off selling the engine the 454s are in demand.

    You'll end up turning it into a parts truck more so than a work truck. Better off to buy a truck already set up the way you need it than to try and convert this and convert that into a POS that'll only be worth $500 if that.
