Guess you have seen numerous vidios on you tube of Cummins in broncos. This year cummins is selling new crate motors for aftermarket use . Check it out ! I'm thinking of maybe doing this in my 68
1968 bronco goal is off the frame restoration with modifications to suspension, power plant, bodywork,paint and you get the idea just about anything I can do on my own garage

I have a cummins in mine  I do everything myself. Best swap ive ever done.  I get better fuel mileage and a load more power. Ive been working on these 4bt and 6bts for sometime now. Pretty much bulletproof engines with what Ive seen them go through over the years  Wasnt a hard swap to do. Just did a bunch of research and asked questions before I got started.
