A lot of people ask the very similar question, and I have to first ask, why? It would almost be easier to buy another Dakota, R/T and you would already have everything setup. The engine swap will require a different trany, different radiator, different ABS, different brains box, and probably a lot of wiring harness changes.

Well i want to keep my truck becuse i have a lift and other upgrads so thats why but thank you
