    Wanting to build a 3/4 or 1 ton 4x4 crew. Possibly a dually and I want to put a diesel in it. However, I don't really want a 6.2 or 6.5. I'd like to have something bigger with more power. My dad runs alot of 7000-8000 series trucks with the 8.2liter detroits. Would this engine work in a pickup? If so what would be required? Transmission? Thanks for the help.

    Power to weight ratio favors the 6.2/6.5. The 8.2L is a whole lot of motor that doesn't make matching power.
