I don't know what you need to do, but if you pull it off, I want to see some pictures!

Have to really build it to hold not only the torque the but the weight. Diesels are obviously very heavy engines. There are quite a few reg cab/shortbed purpose built drag trucks out there but they were likely scratch built or shortened and lowered 3/4 tons to begin with.

First of all....
Welcome to Powerstroke.org


Concerning your question.. I would believe that you would have to gut the engine bay to make room, and would also have to beef up the front suspension to handle the weight. You would also have to figure out how to make room for a big enough radiator to keep the psd cool.

It would be an interesting swap.. and if you decide to do it, I would really like to see pictures. Are you wanting to do this on a 2wd or 4wd truck??

i would say through a solid axle in the front...take the front and back suspension off a superduty and the fab the mounts for the shackle as far as the suspension goes.... are you doin this to be unique.... or turning it into a race truck
