Default WANTED: Diesel Power Wagon

I want the power wagon package but I love the cummins motor. Would it be easier to buy a 2010 power wagon and swap in the diesel motor, tranny, and other go-withs, or get a 2010 Laramie with the 6.7 and swap all the cool gadgets that come with the power wagon package in? Right now I'm leaning toward the Laramie, but I have a while to think while I'm saving up money. I'm just looking for thoughts either way.

I'd start with the diesel truck and add some options. Going the other way is gonna be wayyyy expensive.

Did a little research and found that the biggest reason they don't offer it with the cummins is because the intercooler wouldn't leave room for the winch to be hidden inside the bumper. Someone said on a different forum too that the electronic disconnecting sway bar wouldn't fit somehow, but I don't see how anything would be in the way.
