The engine is in and the fabrication has been done on the engine mounts! It turns out that the front differential is mounted to the engine mounts on both side. As if that’s not crazy enough there is not enough room for the oil pan and the front axle bolted directly to the original engines bell housing!

This may be the coolest diesel swap ever!
Take a perfectly functional kick arse 2001 Dodge Dakota, 4X4, 3″ lift 35″ tires and make it unbelievable cool!

A 47RH transmission and
The factory electric shift transfer case!
Our goal is an inter-cooled diesel truck, capable of 27 MPG.
