    Welcome!

    There's a lot of info in the diesel section about swapping in a 6Bt. Most of it however is geared to the 73-91 style truck. As for CrewCab59, he hangs out here a lot or you might try over at the Cummins Conversion Forum.

    crewcab59, the reason why i am asking you to email me is becuase i seen a post on here that you are working on a computer for the 4l80e which is what i have in my truck and the transmission is my only hurdle i think in doing the swap , along with the convertor i have a bell housing and flywheel lined up out of an old bread truck so thats takin care of

    trust me im thinking long and hard about a swap , i just left a job at cummins working on engines but mainly isx, n14 ,m series etc , did a ton of head gaskets, front gear housing gaskets and vp-44s on the isb so i know most of the pros and cons

    the reason why i want to do a swap is becuase i finally paid of the truck and it has low miles around 98,000 , i like dodge products but the ride is a bit rough for me , i love my 4x4 with independant front end ,,the really nice interior etc... and im a gm guy , but love dodges fords etc


    the swap wont be to hard for me if i do it , i have all the fab work to do it , i built about 7 drag cars mainly tube chassis door cars , have a front engine dragster on the frame table right now being built , have a mill , welders etc

    so when i do start this project i will deffently document it all and post it , im in the hunt and gather stage right now im planning if i do it for winter of 07/08

    thanks ted
