i had the same idea for my 3.9. are you planning on dropping in a stock 5.9 or are you gonna build it up?

Its totally doable. The motor mounts wont line up and do the reasearch on the tranny. Thats a touchy subject matter. I have had dakota since 1992 and I drive a 2000 RT now pushing over 400 ponies.
