Anything can be done for a price. Enough time,money ,ability ,and shop space and anything is possible.<br>What I would do is buy a wrecked truck with the diesel engine in it. That way you have all the parts needed for the swap. You will need the engine, tranny, engine and tranny mounts, fuel tanks, and fuel filters. Tansfere case, new driveshafts custom made.Then you will need the radiator,intercooler(99 and up PS).Air filter assembly, and wiring harness including the computer. Yes these engines are electronically controlled and computer tuned. After all that you will also need alot of patience and fabricating ability. But that being said, it is possible.<br>Maybe an older 7.3 or 6.9 non PS engine would be easier to swap in, or better yet find a late 80's or early 90's dodge with the cummings for s swap, as long as you are going through all the work why not get the best engine available.<br>Both the early cummings and 6.9 and 7.3 had mechanical injection pumps not computer controlled. Also check out the diesel page for fords on the web for stories on other people doing such type swaps.<br>Dino <p>----------<br> Professional Ice and Snow Management <br>Products:Services:Equipment<br>
