what motor and trans are in the 2500? a 5.2 or 5.9 v8 swap shouldn't be a big deal. I wouldn't put a v6 in the 2500-the truck is too heavy. if the 2500 is currently a diesel there will be a lot more work to do.

5.9 v8 not a diesel

should be a straightforward swap since that engine was offered in that truck.
