Anything from 93 to 02 will work. Just need to use your intake, and sensors. I have seen them for as low as 1200, to over 10 grand, just depends on how much power you want.

Google is your friend though. You can sometimes find a good deal that previously you would have missed. Even craigslist can come up with killer deals once in a while.
1996 Ram 2500 5.9 EC/SB Gas, Auto, 4x4, Hughes plenum plate, Kegger mod, double roller timing set, rest is stock. For now.....

Putting a 5.9L Cummins in your truck isn't impossible, lots of work and big $$$$, but it is do able....

If you want a direct swap you could buy a JY engine, maybe rebuild it, nice fresh motor

bbut with switching to diesel will have to replace tranny and front suspension also so might as well save the bucks put another 5.9 gas in or rebuild mine and just drive till dies.
