It will work, you'll need a clutch for it and need to do some metal bending for the floorboard of the truck. That along with the mounts and transfur case if your truck is a 4x4 and drive lines both front and back.

But my question is why do you want to do it. You really don't gain anything with it except for a lower first gear.

we did it, You need transfer case clutch adapter plate driveshafts slave cyl, shifter and build your own cross member. It works out really nice in a lifted truck with a 3.55 gear

Seems to me that you would get a significant RPM decrease and subsequently better mileage in the final gear vs a 5 spd since it is closer to the final drive of an E4OD than the ZF 5s.
