I'm not sure if anyone has swapped a 6.0 into anything. I do know there is a ton of wiring involved in a PSD swap.
Jeff's Bronco Graveyard has radius arm mounts for the D60, you will have to figure out what to use for springs though as the 6.0 is heavier than anything Ford put in the front of that truck from the factory.
