Had guy from my car club do that swap. He switched switched the harness but not entirely sure. He also swapped the dash but didn't need to and also made his own motor mounts

Cheaper to sell the 99 and buy a CTD.

You will need all the electronics from a 99 or early 2000 truck to make it work and finding the needed parts may be a chore.

With how the 2nd Gen Cummins prices have dropped you may find it easier to just sell yours and buy a Cummins.

However,if you prefer to still do it here is a good place to look for needed parts....
