2001 dodge ram 1500 3.9 cummins diesel

so guys, been quite a while since i myself have been able to post on here, just got back from a deployment! and so glad to be home. picking up a 2001 dodge ram 1500 this weekend that im building into an expedition rig. i know people are going to complain that its not a diesel, but i plan to fix that with a 3.9 cummins turbo diesel swap if i can find one on the cheap, i hear that it manages to maintain a pretty decent gas mileage and i can get them around here pretty cheap, for some more info on the truck it was completly linex-ed on the entire outside of the body has a camper top that was also covered with linex, 315/75/17 inch tires on stock 17s, custom made roofrack arb bumper 10k winch. sittin on a 4.5 tough country lift kit. As soon as i remember how (or more likely have to get someone to tell me) i will put up a few pictures. If you guys have any suggestions or comments feel free to respond. also i have a 87 montero that has always been at the back of my mind to build into something but idk about that thiing yet. Let me know what you guys think!

I have a 2001 Ram and a 3.9 4BTA on an engine stand and have been contemplating this same conversion. I will be following your build thread for sure.
