Default Just Wondering

I was wondering if anyone has swaped a cummins in to a 2002 to 2008 ram 1500. Will it even fit. I think it would be a cool project.

I'm not sure that the frame and suspension could handle it .

By the time you get all the right stuff, you'd have already paid the same as buying a used 2500/3500 with one already in it.

You'd have to change the wiring harness, engine, tranny, driveshaft(s), axle(s), suspension, reenforce the frame, fuel system, and computer (unless using a 12v).

Sounds like a cool project, also sounds like a waist of time and money......that is unless it's a Mint Condition 1st gen or something rare.
