Can I put a 5.9 out of a 2003 dodge van into a 2003 ram 1500 that had a 4.7?

Asked by Sep 24, 2014 at 07:47 PM about the 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT 4WD Quad Cab SB

Question type: General

currently have a 2003 dodge ram 1500. Has a 4.7 in it that is bad. Found a 5.9, but its in a
3500 dodge van. Can these motors be swapped (will the 5.9 bolt to the tranny in my
truck). How much else should i ask for (ie wiring harness) for the swap.

I don't think so, if you are considering doing this it would be best to use the entire drivetrtain out of the van, you will need the entire engine wiring harness, the trans harness, all computers,mounts, crossmembers for modification, driveline also for modification, exhaust system for modification, it won't be easy and it will take a lot of time
