Hmmm - IMO this isn't really a practical swap, and you'd be better off finding a platinum with a 6.2 and selling your current truck.

My dad had one of the first diesel pickups known to mankind - a '79 I think with a 6.2 diesel, that wouldn't even get out of its own way for power, but it would pull 22 mpg.
