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.

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
