I haven’t done the swap, but there are kits available. Fatman Fabrications is one source. I do know the frame is narrower than stock and requires 3” longer front A-arms to place the front wheels out further. And I know for the ‘48-‘55 1st series it raises the bed floor, so I would assume it does the same for the ‘55-‘59 trucks as well since the S10 frame kicks up behind the cab.
