That's awfully ****ing stupid... why would you want to lose the horsepower, torque, aftermarket, high rpm power of the v8 powerstroke?

Hmm.. interesting. What trans are you using? That might be interesting. I personally would have just bought a truck that came w/ the diesel instead of trying to rig everything, but good luck

Well for now im putting the getrag 5 speed in it that is coming with the 89 cummins but its only two wheel drive tranny so eventually find a four wheel drive tranny. The reason im using my 250 for a swap instead of buying a diesel is because i have a lot of work done to the axels and everything underneath. I did the solid axel swap on the front end with a F350 axel. I have 5.13 gears, detroit locker in the rear and welded spiders in the front with lockout hubs. Put disk brakes on the rear instead of the drum breaks. I have F350 rear leaf springs up front to allow more flex to her for crawling and trailin. But when i get the cummins motor in she will be my chick magnet and ill find another mud truck!
