Default Motor/tranny swap: Hemi to 24v?

So, I'm a die-hard cummins lover, and purchased an '06 Megacab with the 5.7L Hemi. I've kinda been throwing around the idea of a motor swap once this motor "goes". What are the changes that would need to be made, How easy of a job is it (I have access to mechanics, shops etc.) and what kind of price range is this type of project- start to finish, including motor. (Generally speaking, I have a friend who's uncle owns a junk yard- who is also a good friend of my father.)

Who else has done this type of project or would like to? I'm just looking for some insight..

Trading my truck in is NOT and option...
