It would seem one consideration would have been swapping to 4.10s or 4.56s. Just wondering.

It looks good. I hope it serves you well for many years.

The history of these conversions has shown that the dependability is a direct corelation to the donor truck not the act of the conversion itself. It amazed me how easily integrated the diesel system was. If fact they refer to it as an integration, not a conversion.

Gearing was not an option for us because it is our daily driver. Lower gears would have reduced already poor mpg numbers. Also, we effectively reduced the milage of the vehicle by 83k miles taking this route, regearing would have still left us with 140k mile truck, over all dependability and life expectancy was a major factor as well.
