The backed of the 318 and 360 magnum are identical, the post says 1987 dodge ram, if it's the 1987, it won't. It will fit in the 1997 however as the transmissions are the same. All the clearances between the 1997 and 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 will be the same, driveline, crankshaft etc. They're the exact same truck. Again I repeat, for the 1997 it will work, but not for a 1987... I think you meant 1997 as that's what was in the desc, correct me if I'm wrong.
