Depending on what you can get an engine for, expect anywhere from $5000 to $10000 to do it yourself. Destroked.com has all the answers you seek.

'95 F-250HD
ZF 5-Speed 13'' clutch w/ SMF conversion
B&W Gooseneck
Custom Spare Tire Mount

New engine mounts
trans mounts
driveshafts front and rear due to different case lengths
Made up rad mounts
Air to Air mounts
Usually bash firewall for clearance
Need a dana 60, they are 1250+ lbs

Wiring is eary for mechanical

Engine and trans price aside, it can be done nicely yourself for under 2500.

You dont need a Dana 60...a Dana 50ttb will be good enough. I know of many trucks with snow plows on them with a TTB setup, it will be fine.

We used the ford tranny and transfercase, however the kit say's beat the firewall in a little and to push the tranny and transfercase back towards the rearend and cut 3" out of the rear drive line and add 3" to the front drive line. That way the cummins will fit in the engine bay. How ever we didn't want to cut the drive lines so we left the tranny in the stock position and pushed the radiator out the front 2" and rebuilt the radiator support and grill to make room. Where in the prosses of geting a 2" body lift to make extra cleaarence for the back vaulve covers. We added electric fans for clearence. I will post pictures soon. the total cost was around $7200 when said and done; motor, fuel/oil filters,adadpter kit(motor mounts, adapter plate,custoum pilot bearing, custoum exaust manifold, voltage regulator, air intake, directions on how to) intercooler, custom exahust and intercooler tubes.

You could get away but your front end would wear out a lot faster due to the wieght, a dana 60 would handle the wieght betterr.
