Default Diesel Swap

I have an opportunity to swap out my 95 V-10 with 145,000 miles on it for a 2007 24 valve diesel with 56,000 miles on it. Not sure it's' worth it or can even be done. Any comments are surely welcome. The diesel is in pristine condition as it was removed from a stolen then returned 07 2500 4x4.
The heaviest trailer it pulled was a 25' toy hauler.
The V-10 runs great, no problems with it but i"m looking down the road a bit as i'll probably never get rid of this pickup.

Sure, it can be done. The question is, are you willing to part with the funds to do it?

Well it doesnt seem that hard at a glance but if you think about it really hard decide that you want to do it and do it right then you all you would really need to do is on your tranny change the adapter plate and make sure your motor mounts will work new fuel system in general and flush your old fuel tank and put the computer in there for it it sounds easy but a pain in the a$# but with time and money you can do it just to let you know the 24 valve cummins engines are not cheap
