I wish I could help with that, but I'm near Pittsburgh, PA. Honestly, if you plan to keep the truck for a long time, check some of the nationally recognized parts stores. Most of them sell rebuilt engines at good prices and they come with a good warranty.
The engine you can get (the newer one) will bolt in. However, you will need to switch the sensors with yours, the injection may need changed and vacuum trees / locations may need rerouted. I hate to say, "It won't work, " but it will take a little extra time to switch things, and sometimes I have run into engines that don't even have a place to screw in a sensor that was on the original engine.
If you take your time and really inspect both, side by side, it may not be a hard switch. However, it is the policy of 2carpros not to advise anything other than a direct fit just in case there are differences that will lead to bigger problems.
If you live in PA (I realize the chances are slim) let me know. I have a friend who owns two salvage yards. Infact, I plan to visit him tomorrow AM. If you want, I will ask if the two will change with little trouble.
Let me know.
