All the accessories should swap out! Like the Power steering pump, alternater, A/C, etc...

What I was asking is if you truck "now" has A/C?? If you have it now you shouldn't need to do anything with your radiator.. I've been told that the radiator in a V6 W/AC is actually bigger than one with out and will work fine for the 5.9... But it's only heresay.
**can anyone else put any input on this, prove it one way or the other?**

I swapped my v6 for an 8 last year and the radiator will work for the colder months but it leaves something to be desired for the 80+ degree summer days. If I get stopped in traffic for very long, I have to move over and shut the engine off. I removed the clutch fan for clearance purposes, and installed a dual fan setup from a Nissan Maxima. These fans suck air like all hell, but it's not enough in heavy traffic.

Hope this helps
Geoff
