I am replacing my current 3.9 liter v6 gas engine with a diesel. Can I use the current 5 speed manual transmission and drive train with the diesel engine? Are there any other items that I should be aware of ?

Which diesel? 4BT, 6BT, 6.7L?

If the bellhousing is modular then an SAE-type might be adaptable, but if you go with one of the inline sixes I'd go for a stronger unit...

Just a sanity check, have you considered your front suspension needs and changes handling?

If you're aiming for the 5.9CTD. I would also advise several other upgrades on the truck.. If you're using the 3.9L CTD...there should be a bell housing to make the rest of your current parts work..
