I have not done one of those, why not just get the 96 up and going again?

It could work, I think it was 78 or 79 dodge built their first diesel truck with a Mitsubishi engine, it was low on power and just did not fair well. I would keep a close eye on the front end. If you can slide the engine back as far as practical to help keep the weight off the front end. And the rear end may be a little light, it seams like they use a Dana 60 back there. It's a good rear end but may be just a little light with more than a stock engine giving it a twist.
