You're going to want an entire 7.3 drive line donor to do this project. Front and rear axles, driveshafts (need to be cut to length), Transmission, Transfer case....

Best of luck. You are a far more ambitious man than I.

don't forget the springs because of the weight. Also will need the fuel tanks, pumps, electrics, guages, etc.

Personally, I would go for a 4 cylinder Cummins conversion. The weight of the engine, output power, and torque lend themselves to using the existing drive line.

Problem is, those motors are rare specifically because they're such good candidates for short wheelbase SUV conversion projects.
