01 LB7 To 77 body 73 Frame Chevy k10

So, on the 13th of May 2017, I was T-Boned by a Driver who ran a red light in my 2001 Duramax Crew Cab Longbox LT. and totaled the truck And I've had this plow truck laying around and I'm wondering what it would take ti putt that motor and tranny inside that truck? and where do tranny wires and everything run? and could it be broken and messed up? Please more people the better.

Dash isn't important, you do have to keep your gauge cluster and all engine electronics like you ecm, tcm, and your full harness.
