Another 1982 Nissan 720 Kingcab Diesel equipped chassis.
You asked for easiest.

Weld up the frame. My 620 was rusted through at the leaf springs. I had a shop bend up two 3 foot sections of U shaped 1/8" thick steel in a brake press. It slipped up and over the frame from underneath and I made two welding passes along the top seams. Had to make pie cuts to follow the bends but worked like a hot damn.

Your not talking about a 4wd truck, just put the engine transmission in and connect the transmission mount, then make an adapter plate for the diesel mounts.
You could also just cut your diesel mounts off the old rusted frame and weld them onto the gasser frame after you cut the gasser mounts off, this is the easiest, then put your diesel cab onto the chassis/frame, it will bolt right on as far as I know.
The 4wd 720 is the only one with a strange oil pan, a pan has to be made to drop a SD series diesel into a 720 here unless you can get one from another county that got 720 4wd diesels like Australia.
