Unfortunately, Ford did not make it as easy as Chevrolet did in retro-fitting new engines to old cars and trucks, they change quite a bit over the years, and makes it harder to do a swap like you want to. That said, though, it may still be possible. But you will most likely need some VERY experienced advice and help to get it done right, as 17 years is a rather big time difference in engine generations. I can't help you, I'm a Chevy / AMC guy, but I DO know that Fords tend to be tougher to customize this way than Chevies, but go for it. You got the motor.

It should fit right in though the mounts may be different and the transmission might not line up.Another thing if the new motor has fuel injection you are going to need the computer it's harness and anything else related to the fuel injection setup to make the engine work in the truck.If it's carburated then you should be all set though you might need to use the exhaust manifolds from the blown engine unless you plan on using headers and custom making a new exhaust system as the exhaust manifolds from the new engine probably won't line up with the original y-pipe.

it's probebly the same block so the only problem you might have is the mounts and deciding what to do with all the extra space in the bay

easy. just take your time and be patient.
if its an injected motor, remeber you'll need the loom, computer and the fuel pump as well.
