The Durango with a 4.7 came with the 45RFE 4-speed in 2000-2002 and the 545RFE 5-speed in 2003. The Dakota does not list a 5.3L ..any year. It did have a 5.2L and lists the same transmissions.

I might be able to be more specific in I knew what model year(s) you want to swap

Sorry it is the 5.2

no, they will not swap. the Dakota with the 5.2 came with a 46RH or 46RE transmission, both 4speed automatics. also, all wiring and underhood components are different.
