I think you could use anything from '99 thru '11, with the 05 and later having coil spring front suspension. Also '02 and later front axles will be a Dana 60 rather than D50.
Trading in your truck would be less work, and possibly the same price, although you could use the driveline components from a gas truck (but not the auto tranny), which would be cheaper to buy as a parts truck than a diesel.

Yes, or you can have a driveline shop shorten yours for you.
