I also put a 80's c10 crossmember in and it was easy.

I followed what this guy did and it worked out awesome. Very straight forward and way easier than swapping frames and dealing with all the mount relocations. Mostly, I had to drill 2 holes to locate (upper ouside, one on each side) and wallow out the other 4 on the vertical sides of frame and wallow out the 6 on the horizontal parts of the frame. Everything is seen on his video. Worked like a charm. He even shows how to do the PS conversion bracket and the Captain Fab booster mount. His videos are great.

I don't remember where I found them. I think I just googled frame schematic by year and make.
