Personally if the 7.3 runs good I’d just run that until it goes. Buy that wrecked Cummins, get a p pump and zf6 or Allison for it, then swap the 24v and trans directly onto the ford once the 7.3 is dead. Fords make the strongest frames, bodies and parts out of the big three. Dodge cheaps out on everything. I wouldn’t use anything but the Cummins Engine out of a dodge. Use whatever transmission you like.
The 7.3 is a million mile motor also, I see no real reason to trash it if the truck is running good. Use it to make money for the swap, then when you’re ready or the 7.3 kicks it, make a dope Cummins swap in a Ford. That way you don’t rush a project, can properly research the project, and don’t put a good running truck down for a project.
Even if you’ve worked on Cummins for 10 years, do you want your son driving a swap as his first truck? Dope idea that’s for sure but is it the most logical for the time?
