Has this been done before?

Has anyone ever put a 7.3L motor in a new 2011/2012 Body,frame and cab(the whole works, interior, exterior trim, ect)?

basically getting a new 2012 ripping out the 6.7 and putting in the 7.3?

I think it'd be pretty cool.

Wow. Ummm, yea with enough money you can. Did someone already? Who knows.
Need the motor, whole wiring harness and PCM, adapter to go the 6R140 which should have it's one stand alone controller. And I'm sure a LOT of other stuff. But there's no reason it shouldn't fit.

Someone had a pic on a thread of a green one with the front end conversion.
Some big diesel/trucking show.

Spend 50-70 K on a truck and then tear out the 20K in motor and trans. Lay off the bong hits! That's retarded. Take a 7.3 and rebody it and save 35-50K makes a hell of a lot more sense.

It would make more sense to rebuild a 7.3 with the newer body.

The other thing is to check your local laws, most state DMV's won't allow an older motor (which in this case also is void of the emissions control equipment) to be dropped into a newer vehicle and registered.
