Hmmm. Given that there are so few used Excursions on the market, I don't know the market. I do know this about the pickups- all other things being equal (condition, miles equipment), a gas SD will bring $3000-$5000 less than a diesel. Unless you drive a heckuva lotta miles, that buys a lot of gas. Then there's the other Catch-22. The '03 and older Excursions had the venerable 7.3, but the transmission was substandard. They improved the transmissions dramatically with the advent of the 6.0... but that motor in itself was a heckuva risk.

With modern electronics and engine controls, any swap like you're talking about is a lot more complicated than it looks on the surface. Definitely not a DIY proposition.
