Just kind of curious, has anyone swapped out a 360 for a cummins in a first gen ram? What would it entail? I could get a cummins cheap and want to know if it is possible or even worth it.

Thanks,
Jesse

Worth it? Calculate that your mileage will double and your diesel will last at least 3 time as long as a gas engine. 88 or late ram will be a bolt in. Buy a complete parts truck and don't start the project until your ready to do it to completion.

If the Cummins is automatic the 23 spline T-case can be reused, the 5spd CTD is 29 spline so t Cummins 5spd 205 must be used, as for axles the stock half ton ones can be used if you don't turn the Cummins into a beast or beat on them with it all the time.
