Fuel pump, bell housing, motor mounts
It's really not an easy swap and not really worth it since you can just purchase a truck with one in it for typically cheaper then what you'll have into the swap

Transmission valve body will need reprogramming for different rpm range. Different torque converter. Agreed, look around and find a Cummins truck in good shape. Cheaper and then you have all that time to do other stuff like sell your gasser.

suspension too, the diesel engine a normally more heavy

also look to make sure it bolts to your current transmission, maybe you will have problem with that
