cummins swap, not that hard!

I recently swaped a idi 7.3 in a 93 f350 dually for a 12v cummins. I dont own a big shop or have money 2 just pay someone 2 figure it all out for me, and i still made the swap in just a few days. I used motor mounts i found in stock, at auto zone. Even the radiator hoses i found in stock. No special parts wer required, tho it helped 2 have the whole doner truck. Any one looking 2 make the swap should know The hardest part of the whole swap was pulling the cummins from a pos dodge!!! Want pick or more details, just message me.

powerstroke'd 87 f250 5spd, intercooler, areomotive fuel pressure regulator, digital dash, zoom stage 4 clutch/flywheel, custom driveshaft by austin drive train, custom fuel system ts 6 pos chip+ edge+ idm hack ,

what kind of motor mounts did you use??? did you mount them in the stock location? did you put the dodge trans in the truck or keep the ford trans and got a adaptor plate?

2010 Ford Focus blacked out and fswerks exhaust.
2008 F-350 xl cc/lb 4x4 dpf delete, PDF-r tune and s&b cold air kit.
