DIESEL SWAP: 3.9 Cummins 4BT in an '04 Chevy Tahoe

I put a 3.9L Cummins 4BT in a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe. This diesel-powered Tahoe is my daily driver and was built on a budget. I bought the truck for $1,600 with a blown 5.3L V-8 gas engine. Then I bought two Cummins 4BTs with transmissions, sold both transmissions, and sold one 4BT to cover the cost of building up the other 4BT.

I spent about 120 hours including conversion and bodywork getting this old girl to better-than-new condition. All the gauges work as original along with all options except cruise control (I'm working on it). The total cost of the build is a little less than $7,500, but it turns heads everywhere!
