Here's how my swap went. :)
I'm not able to say I turned every nut and bolt.
But I was able to count out thousands of dollars in Canadian currency.

I鈥檒l throw my hat in the ring...

My current 12V swap got put on the back burner for the past year because i smooshed my foot while racing dirtbikes. 1971 Ford Highboy 12v Cummins swap NV4500 NP241

I originally bought a 95 12V single cab from Copart back in 2012. The front frame horns were pretty bent, but i drove is live that for about 4 years. I then stumbled upon an early 98 extra cab body and frame roller. I bought the 98 roller and swapped in my 95鈥檚 engine, tranny, T case. Then about 2 years later a car pulled out in front of me and i T-boned it. It totaled out the truck big time. Thank God the 3 identical triplet girls in the T boned car didn鈥檛 die! The after quite a few years i decided to swap the Cummins into my 71 Ford Highboy. I鈥檓 getting closer to getting finished, but i鈥檓 still searching for the perfect radiator for my particular application (i want to have both an intercooler and an AC condenser WITHOUT having to trim back my grill).

All my Ford has ever seen is work. I installed a hydraulic dump bed years ago, and rarely does it ever see less than 4000lbs of weight in the bed (the most weight i鈥檝e had in the bed was 4-3/4 tons)!

I absolutely loved my 95 cummins and i absolutely love my 71 Ford, so maybe it鈥檚 a match made in heaven?

Basically new to this forum and just saw this. Any chance I can slip my 1971 Dodge school bus in the running still or am I officially to late?

A little more information about it can be found in the introduction I just made.

The Bus

The quick rundown of The Bus.

A 1971 Dodge W300 Power Wagon School Bus that was used in the mountains of Colorado to get children to school in the winter and later continued it's rugged mountain life as an elk hunting vehicle.

I bought it as a shell sitting in a field and have completely restored the exterior(new paint, lights, ect.) and swapped in new axles, a 12v Cummins, and a new manual transmission.

It is now running and driving, but does still need some finishing touches (wire management, finish rebuilding the firewall, and get the hood on)

I am currently renovating the interior to make the most badass and rugged 4wd home on wheels you've ever seen.

Another close race, everyone make sure to get out to vote, wouldn't take much to have a multiple way tie breaker round, let's show the Cummins Conversion Crew some love and find a winner! Voting ends tomorrow at noon PST, so not much time left to vote if you haven't already
Well, it's after noon PST and it looks like we have a tie, is there a sudden death run-off tie breaker of some kind thats suppose to happen now?

I'll concede the race to you Antonm, I put a vote in for myself and that shouldn't really count.
