IMO don't think is going to be a problem. In Tx we don't have to show registration as its on the windshield. Customizing your vehicle like this should be fine. If you were turning it into a limo and there were some law that governed length/width...ect then you would need to register it that way.
If you tell the lady behind the counter what you did then you can bet you will be in for some more costs and red tape. Just go pay your reg fee and keep the pie hole zipped.
Again IMO.

I know the one you're talking about. Haven't seen him around for a while though.
Was the front conversion as simple as swapping spindles? Or did you have to change control arms and/or crossmember too?

It was on kijiji last winter. Here's a pic of it for anyone wondering what we are talking about.

As far as the conversion goes. The rear is just a dif swap with a conversion u-joint to mate the 3/4 dif to the 1/2 ton. The front was a little more involved, the lower control arms are the same as well as the tie rods. Spindles, dust shields, upper control arms, brakes, brake hoses and callipers are all from the 1/2 ton. I used a 1/2 ton 4/6 drop kit.

Cool. So the rear spring perches were the same distance apart on the 1/2 ton diff?
