    Did you do a build thread on your 7.3 swap? If so I'd love to see it, I'm hoping to do the same thing with my 79 dent. Did you swap engines or did you put the body on a diesel truck chasis? I'm not sure wich direction to go, body swap to a newer diesel chasis or engine swap, any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you Jim
