Thanks for the tip. Could you spare a few moments to share a detail or two about the conversion? Did you go with an AT or a 5 spd? Both my trucks have good factory automatics. I want to install an NV-4500, or a 6 spd. if I can find one. I see that some install Allison automatics, but I'm trying to hold the cost down as much as possible. Is there any other reason you would use the Ford except for the ease of installation? Aren't the Chevy frames stronger? Does it have anything to do with the Ford being a 4D while the Chevy is only an extended cab? Thanks again.

the reason i say to use the ford is that they are better truck especially if it is 4wd because you will have the dana 60 front axle instead of the independent front suspension junk and the cummins fits in perfect.what i did on the last one was i took a 94 f350 and yanked motor out. made brackets for motor mounts and set cummins in. i used the adapter plate,flywheel and clutch from a dodge truck.and used a 2wd nv5600 trans. then i used a divorced style np205 transfer case. made a trans mount and driveshafts and it was ready to go. if you use a divorced style tcase you have to remove the front fuel tank though. i also used a intercooler from a 99 ford with a powerstroke. they are alot better than the dodge style and fit good with only minor trimming of the core support.

I decided against buying the Ford because it was too rough. And I am opting for fuel mileage over traction in inclement weather so I don't need a 4WD transfer case and such. I guess this is the stuff of horse races, but every front end mechanic I talked to about this said the Chevy frame is the strongest of all the major brands of pickups. My mechanic among them.
