5.9 cummins into my 88 d100?
 
will it physically fit? my dad found a beat up 98 with a cummins in it for 500bucks, i think i read somewhere on here that id have to do some cutting of the firewall to even think about putting this in, but it would be real sweet to have a diesel again lol.

i think for $500 you should give it a try.

First Cummins was 1989. Same basic truck. Don't see why it wouldn't fit.

The problem I see is that the half ton frame was not made for the kind of torque.

This is a doable swap, read articles where the Ford guys have done similar stuff with chokers. But it required lots of beefing up the frame and suspension.
