Default 05 manual PD in an S-10 Pick up

Hey Guy's
My kid and I are kicking around attempting to use his now totaled low mile PD manual drive train in an 80's possibly 90's s-10 pick up truck. More than likely it would be a two wheel drive truck slammed in the weeds...
Has anyone attempted this? If so what are the biggest hurdles to overcome?

There are a few threads on here about s10 builds but I don't know if any were actually finished. I'm working on a ranger but I am using a s10 transmission. What I can say is that if you use a 4.3 trans and make your own adapter the engine cant be mounted vertically, needs to be clocked at 20 degrees to make sure the vw dowel pin doesn't interfere with the starter.
