Sorry for the late reply, just caught your post.. I did my conversion on a 3500hd with a 6.5 in it[99' year].. My swap was easy, your will be a bit harder due to 4x4 and gasser.. Give some idea how i did mine.. First the 12v engine, which came from a bus also.. List of parts i can remember.. Ex manifold,oil pan,dipstick,filler neck, powersteering pump, turbo oil drail tube, flywheel, adapter houseing ,bell houseing, air filter box, all came from a dodge truck.. If this list of stuff doesent deter you, and u want more info, i will watch for more of your post in the thread..
