Cummins diesel engine swap

Anyone done this, or heard anything about it? I would be curious to know how this runs etc.

I've actually sat in this truck... It was at my buddies shop as he, the owner was crossing the US taking pictures... It was cool and done correctly. The engine was out of a FedEx truck. It runs very well, extremely slow in 1st gear.

Shane at Rover Hybrids also did the SVO conversion, so it ran on Veggie oil.

Checked into that type of swap when I was new here and pissing off the people who know a lot more than me. It looked like a good swap but too deep to be of real use. Oil pan sitting a few inches below stock?

Its tall, but do-able, and easier than a 6BT.
