I'd switch your dump bed to the 99 chassis. Much easier, in my opinion. What is the serial number of the 3126?

Change from 3116 to 3126

I have a 94 GMC TopKick with a 275HP 3116 that has bit the dust. I've had a hard time finding another 3116 with decent HP at a price I can afford. I have found a 99 GMC Kodiak flatbed truck with a good rebuilt 3126. 

I am trying to find out if it would be best to switch the axles and dump bed to the 99 or to switch the engine and necessary electronics to the 94. Actually the 99 cab is better, which made me wonder if it would be best to switch cabs as well leaving electronics in place

Any thoughts, advice, ideas, or other comment would be greatly appreciated.
