Nothing..
LA and B/RB trucks used the same frame.
Just swap out the passenger oil pan for a truck oil pan and rear oil sump/pickup.
You will also need either truck log manifolds,or truck headers,and the obvious big block motor mounts or get the Schumacher conversion mounts in a kit.
BTW,truck oil dipsticks go through the oil pan to the rear of  the oil pan--different than the passenger blocks.
Hope this helps

In 1984 Dodge changed the frames. Anything older than 1984 is a true bolt in for a big block using BB mounts. After that you would need to make something for it to work when it comes to mounts.
