don't waste your time and money, it will require alot of work. You'll have to upgrade the front suspension and all the wire harness for motor and the PCM. Better off just finding a diesel 2500.

Yea but if its something you want to do then go for it. Thats what I want to do. I have an 04 1500 single cab shortbed. That wouls be a bad ass truck to put a cummins in. Check out www.4btswaps.com. The do a lot of diesel swaps and they could help you out.

California smog laws wouldn't allow it, smog check every 2 years, the engine size & type have to have been an Option for that vehicle & that year
unless you live in way out in the County & up in the hills, where for some reason the smog laws change
