No prob. Mild to moderate off road and musing I would do a sbc carb motor with an automatic like a short turbo 350. Auto will help cushion the torque to rear end. I would do a 8.8 ford rear end with disc upgrade to insure to handle the torque. If change rear and want a good all around clutch set up I would do a nv4500 5 speed. Either way u will need adapters check out Novak. I believe most complete IMHO then a decent brand lift say 4" set of 33 inch tires and nice rims to match gear front and rear axles to match what u want and enjoy. Add aluminum radiator and fan to match engine.
U may want to join a local club. U can find similar people with local experience and could help u with a fabricator that can help direct u in parts they will need. A lot of fabricators like to get there own parts because they know what works best and saves money in long run.
What is ur budget. A friend did a 350 stuff in late 90's and it cost a pretty penny to pay someone else to do. I would imagine ur looking at $3000-$5000 in doing this paying someone else
Keep working on it don't get discourage keep researching and talking to people. Watch for Craigslist deals and on JF parts
. I have bought a lot through those venues. I even got my turn key tpi on cl. But don't buy till u and ur fabricator come up with a game plan. I know I have done the opposite and bought with intent and often is fitting a square peg in round hole costing more then it should.
