PowerStroke to Bronco Swap

This is simply a hypothetical question

How complicated would it be to swap a 7.3 Powerstroke,tranny,suspension and computer from a donor SuperDuty to an early '90s Full sized Bronco. Keep in mind strictly a hypothetical question!!! Obviously the drive shaft would have to be shortened, but i am curious what all would be involved!

I've seen it done. There was a Silver 90s Bronco with a PSD at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes. I didn't get to look under the hood because it was just driving around. I know for a fact that it was a PSD because it had a Powerstroke sticker on the back tailgate and it smoked when it was climbing the dunes.

I have heard of it being done but never talked to anyone who has attempted it. Nice paint job BTW

Be nice to have another local one. There is one 76 down here in with a 94 PSD motor in it somewhere.

Just so happens i have found a good deal on the Bronco, now i just need to find the donor PSD. Definately leaning towards the 7.3. Im sure my wife would love it if i dropped a Big C*****s in it. But i can't even mutter those words much less go through with it!!!

Might be easier to make a PSD into a Bronco than a Bronco into a PSD.

A couple of weeks ago I saw a 7.3 Excursion on Ebay that had the center section cut out to make it a 2 door. It was a pro job and looked sharp. Tried to find it today to post the pic but it is gone.

This is my Photoshopped version:

I really like the cut excursion, however i do like the idea of having the removeable "camper" top in the summer for riding in the mountains

Joe those were conversions done by Centurion. You could get them with a 7.3 or a gas 7.5 and I WANT ONE BAD!

I keep a very sharp eye on CL and ebay for one with a PSD but they are very rare.

If there is ever a vehicle id like to have, it would be a Bronco with a PSD. If i can find a good deal on a bronco and a 7.3, that would be a fun project.

Yeah, I have seen those around and yes they are Centurion conversions. They have a few bad area's that they were known to rust, but i always liked them. There used to be one running around Atlanta when I lived there.
