Really? I've seen it done for the 3000$ range by guys who have a small scrapyard of trucks to rob, but most don't. I've read the logs of about 20 of these conversions, all except one cost a lot of money to do right.

I am fortunate in having two old school mechanics who are not just parts changers. The one doing the conversion does indeed have a "flower garden" of old trucks to rob parts from. He is 63 years old, slender of build, been mechaniking since about age 3, and very reasonable in his charges. I've never brought him a problem he couldn't solve. I would not have even considered letting anybody else do the work.

I should add, these are 4wd automatic cummins swaps so you need:
-new rad
-new mounts
-front and rear dshaft work
-computer to run the transmission
-a/c brackets
-specific manifold to fit the turbo in the right place
-new rad unless you had a big block in it
-New front springs unless you had diesel
-Exhaust work obviously
-Tach signal adapter
-Hydroboost brake conversion unless you want vac pump brakes
-dozens of other little things

Actually, as long as you use an A518 or an RH transmission, they are hydraulically controlled, except OD and lock-up, if it has it. You can use 2 pipe fittings, pressure switches, and a couple other switches in the cab to control both OD and lock-up, for well under 50 bucks.

Negatory. This is a 2WD conversion using a 5 spd. NV-4500 tranny.
