As far as the question is concerned you should look into this, first, is the ECM's part number the same, and if so then it will directly replace the other one. and second, if the truck is the same generation and has the exact same engine transmission combo then yes. i.e. a 98 ram 1500 auto with the 5.9L and a 01 ram 1500 auto 5.9L same control units and so on. Lucky unlike a BMW's changing the ECM doesn't require changing the Keys to match the RF indicators
