2006 cummins/auto into a ford

I have a 2006 dodge 2500 and always wanted to put a cummins td into a '99 to 2003 f250 or 350. I just got a stage 2 48re trans build from Garmon Performance Diesel in Georgia and have a Garrett ball bearing turbo (GT3782R) on its way from Turbo Resource in Arizona. So what would it take money-wise to get that drivetrain into a ford? The cummins is a 24v common rail and not sure how the computer would tie into a swap like that. Are the axles and diffs on a ford better than the American Axle units on the dodge? Trying to get a realistic idea what I am looking at to do a swap. I may have a 2000 model F350 located without an engine but haven't talked to owner to see what it would take to buy from him. Any input on this welcome...

depends how much of the work you can do yourself and what pieces you have with the engine. I would suggest looking for a 05+ so you get the coil front end.

The wiring isn't that big of a deal.
