    That would be cool, lol for having all that 13k wrapped up in the conversion you would think he would at least know the name of Cummins not Cummings..lol. I would think someone along the way woulda let him know.

    You would think that a truck with that clean of a body and supposedly a Cummins wouldn't be parked in some field out by the guys house. Man that sucker should have a spot in the driveway.

    I know but look at your avatar, it doesn't have to be paved but it sure doesn't have to look like a jungle.

    Whoo, slow your roll, It doesn't cost 13Gs to swap in a cummins. 6G's max if you factor in labor. I helped a buddy swap one into a '79 GMC. Some of the parts were a bit pricey, but within about 3 grand. It took some looking to gather up most of the parts. Ok, maybe he put in a brand new 6BT. Now that could cost some money. You can find used 12 valves all day for under 2K, whuch is what I would use.

    There was a 92ish IFS burb with a cummins for sale in CA a while back, think on craigslist.

    Had a stick in it too.....that made it cooler. But then again, a 92 burb with a stick looks kinda goofy......

    You might be a REDNECK; if the directions to your house include "turn off the paved road at.......
