Any ideas, recommendations and details about the swap are appreciated.
Also person experiences would be great
If you gotta do that kinda driving regularly, I'd try to flip it for a tidy profit the get a bus more suited to what you want to do.
You'll be thousands of dollars and lots of hours swapping stuff.
Find something with a Cummins 8.3 or Navistar DT466, and overdrive trans, air ride, and highway gearing in the rear.
