My Ram has the sorry 3.9L V6 and I really

I have seen it done but it was a lot of work, mounts had to be changed, a crossmember had to be moved, driveline work, cooling system change out, not to mention all of the electrical harness change out for the Computers. It will have to be swapped as a unit, engine and tranny, for the computer system to function properly. Good luck.
