Auto to 5sp

How hard is it to swap an auto out and a 5 sp in? My w350 is getting tired but has good tranny. I'm looking for a w250-350 to put my hydra dec on and/or nv4500.

I found that a good auto wrecker is a great source of information, I was asked to do a Ford it involved replacing the steering column and a major renovation for the fire wall. I have never done a Dodge. but you really want to get anouther truck with a standard in it and start looking at what parts need replacing. A good auto wrecker is my first choice.
Just a thought!
