6.0 in a dodge?

I'm building a 6.0 engine at the moment. Don't have near enough parts yet. I'm going to put it in a 1985 D350 Prospector Dodge crew cab dually 2wd truck. I don't think it's been done. I want to be the first but if it has I want to see it so I can do simalar

That would definatly be a first, nobody has ever considered swapping out the best that is the Cummins for a 6.0, normally it's the other way around. Good luck and take lots and lots of pics.

How is a Dodge 360 gasser considered cheap power? I'll give it the reliability part. We're talking 1985 here, not 95.
