Agreed with above. Unless you like spending money, or do this as a hobby, don't swap a different engine. Drop a used or even a reman V10 or get a newer truck.

If you're burning that much oil you've got a real problem.

I think with those conditions, I'd just start saving for a replacement engine.

I don't disagree with you entirely. I also don't judge people for driving what they want so long as they're educated enough to know what the difference in choices really is.

I always say, if you don't require the diesel, get a gas. It might be more fun to drive, but it won't be more fun to repair. I'll be driving my 3V V10 until it needs a new engine or somehow...

I'd say the chances are pretty slim that there's significant damage. Patch it all up and do a compression test if you're worried.

I'm sure this won't be a popular opinion on a truck forum, but if you don't need it, is it worth all the money? It's not just fuel, oil, and tires you're consuming by driving it. You're going to...

Not to mention the add on piece for the DRW trucks is just that, added on. Significantly cheaper to manufacture, replace, repair. It looks slightly worse, but for the cost, it's probably worth it.

Why are the front wheel wells different on the DRW trucks compared to the SRW? I don't like the looks of the DRWs honestly, but as far as SRWs, I like both. I do NOT however, like those stupid...

Do a lot of reading up, there's easier ways than others depending on what tools/shop you have access to. Just be ready for a fair amount of time and knuckle grinding.

Yeah that's going to be a job. If you're on a farm and you have a legit mouse problem that some poison won't stop, seriously consider getting some male cats. They'll fight and make a lot of noise,...
