I also have a Dodge Cummins, a 1993 model, with somewhere between 300k and a million miles. Don't know because the speedometer hasn't worked in years. Great truck. I am also in the middle of putting a 1993 5.9 Cummins in a 1994 Chevy dually, with an NV 4500 5 spd. and a heavy duty brass insert clutch pack. I paid $500 for the truck, $800 for the motor, $642 for the tranny, $100 for the bell housing(converting from an automatic to a standard), $443 for the clutch pack, $195 for the flywheel, $158 for the clutch master and slave cylinder, pedal and bracket, and $107 for an intercooler. My welder made the 2" risers to lift the cab for $40. So we have about $2800 in parts, and no more are anticipated to be needed except miscellaneous stuff like AC brackets, motor mounts, drive shaft parts, etc. Labor costs will be about a thousand. So, for a total of about $4000, we will have a perfect combination of the strongest pickup body with the strongest, most durable, fuel efficient motor. I wouldn't think that guy in Chicago has much business.

If I had anything else to drive I would try to do the conversion myself. When you get done, post again and tell us how it turned out. Those original 5.9 can't be beat.
