Replacing the engine in a durango with a dakota engine

Asked by Mar 25, 2015 at 12:40 PM about the 2004 Dodge Durango ST

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 Durango 2 wheel drive with a 4.7l v8.  Engine is blown. I can get my
hands on a 4.7l v8 from a Dakota quad cab 4wd.

The VIN on the Durango is:1d4hd38n54f
The Dakota VIN is: 1D7HG48N04S

Should this been an easy swap with no transmission change?  Will the wiring or other
parts need changing?

Any Help greatly appreciated.
