    Save yourself the hassle and just buy a diesel. You could probably get a good deal on a new one right now. You would probably be able to save a lot of time, hassle, and money this way. Just my 2 cents.

    agree with above, just go buy one

    unless you have a whole lota time and $$$$ to throw into it, in the end all the money and time you put into doing it you coulda bought one already

    that truck is too new to do that conversion unless the engine is shot to begin with. Even then, unless you have a cheap source for the new engine it is going to cost you a lot. and by a lot I mean price it all out and then double that, if not more, because that's how projects like that go.

    It would be much wiser, as has been said (and you don't want to hear, of course) to sell your truck and buy a diesel instead.
