Like I've said before, with enough money anything is possible. It would take a lot of time and knowhow to swap over to a diesel. You would have to change so much of the electrical components and wiring as well as the engine and transmission.

T.A. is right. It can be be done. If you insist I recommend the Cummins 6 cylinder diesel engine that Dodge uses. But at what cost?
