76 body to 81 4x4 chassis

Hey Everyone. So I'm struggling with a decision here. I have 2 trucks. A 76 Chevy C20 camper special 454 turbo 400. And a 81 K20 with a 350 and a 4 speed. Is it reasonable to put the 76 body, which is in great shape, on the 81 chassis. The 81s body is ratty and Frankenstein, but kinda cool. Thing is, while I love em both, I don't need 2 trucks. With the costs of fuel/insurance and so on. Plus the space in my yard haha.

How big of a job is it?. I've done some frame offs before, but is there anything to look out for? I know I'll need a different trans tunnel. That's ok, I'll probably go automatic with an OD transmission. Anything else? Any tips are welcome.
