Default 318 conversion to cummins

Hey all, I have a 2001 dodge ram regular cab short bed. I wanted to make a one of a kind truck and was looking into converting this gas job over to a cummins. I wanted to do some research before jumping head first into this project. One of my concerns was if the truck is physically long enough for the cummins engine/tranny/trasfer/drive shafts etc. If anybody has any experience with this I would appreciate any insight on the subject. Thanks
