    yeah, you just cut out the old motor mounts, weld up some new ones, machine an adapter plate for the transmission, and splice in the ECU to the truck harness. Then it bolts right up.

    I seriously doubt it just bolts right up.

    Actually you just have to hook up jumper cables between the batteries, but instead of the negative to negative you connect those to the top of the engine. Then the motors actually swap themselves when you put it in 4th gear

    you're new here, so i'll translate what these other members are saying:
    if you have to ask... you probably aren't qualified to do the job.

    Don't be mean to the guy.

    For the real answer, no it will not fit in a double cab, but it will fit in regular and extended cabs.
