Default 5.8 in 1985 STX 4X4

My build is to put a 5.8/ 351W in my truck. My parts truck is a 1994 F150 the motor isn't original. I plane to use the wiring harness from the F150. As I have read on some posts a body lift helps with clearance issues. I haven't seen to many people doing this swap in first gens. Any helpful hints would be great.

Why not a Boss 302....or a Boss 351? Since you are dreaming, what about a 3.5L Ecocboost?

I have the donor truck already. It's a 94 f150 4X4. Has all the wiring harness, just needs me to get it running before I start pulling it apart.
