Best bet is to locate a truck, with the preferred driveline from engine to
rearend, that has been totalled out at some wreckers and buy the whole thing and
then you have all the necessary stuff to swap it over. Going from a gasoline
powered engine/driveline to a diesel engine/driveline requires a lot of changes.
Locally, you can call wrecking yards and tell them what you are looking for and
they will put you down on their list to call when something of that nature shows
up. Not all wrecking yards handle such as you are looking for, but they are
usually friendly enough with someone that does and will refer you to them IF YOU
ASK. Key here is to ask. It will also take some engineering and fabrication
to swap from TTB to solid axle front if you are looking to go 4X4. Drive shafts
will most likely be custom at any rate.

I have an '80 F100, am looking at putting coils and rear springs from an '82
F250 on it. Lengths all appear to match. Can anyone out there tell me if it
will/might work or am I just wasting time and money.

Thanks.
