Yes, absolutely.

do you know if I would have to change out the ecm and the wiring harness?

I don't think you'll have any problem with using the existing wiring harness but the PCM should be reprogrammed for the correct VIN if you swap it, but you might be able to retain your old one. Everything should bolt right into place. Dodgetalk.com and Ramforum.com have dedicated threads to engine swaps for Dodge trucks. I don't see anything that would keep you from bolting the new engine right into place.

thank you

Cluke78 did you successfully change the engine? without any mod? i’d Love to know as i’m going to do the same and i can’t find much info on the net. please hit me up if you can or reply to this thread.
