All of the 96-2002 second gen dodges share a 46RE transmission that is identical as far as internals go. 318 V8 powered trucks come with a lower stall speed torque converter than 360 V8 powered trucks. A 99 may or may not work depending on when the transmission was built dodge switched its communications system around this time and subsequently the electrical connections changed.

I've been told that 96&97 are the only two years that will fit..
