it should fit since they both share the same mechanics. You will need the correct wiring harness and ECU to get it to run properly. The Dakota RT came with a 5.9 you could try sourcing the computor and wiring harness from one of those. Try Ebay or Craigslist. Good luck

There is also a possibility that the computer from the Durango will work in the Dakota because the wiring is similar.

I don't think your 45RFE trany in the 2001 dakota will work with the 5.7L engine. The spec says it goes with the 545RFE trany. So, you probably have to change out the trany too.

the 5.9 had a 46RE transmission. the 4.7 has a 45RFE. they are not interchangeable. have to swap trans too.
