I have never thought of this before, but I would think you could swap the bodies. If the wheelbase and body are of the same configuration, do a full swap. A garage with a lift would allow you to disconnect the body, raise it, roll out the gasser frame, and roll in the diesel frame. The dash and wiring stuff could be swaped. I would do that before I cut any body parts... body mounts and such should line up. Good luck.
