1999 3.9 v6 to 2004 5.7 hemi engine swap?
 
So, I have a 1999 single cab 1500 with the 3.9 v6 and I want to swap the engine with a 2004 5.7 hemi! I know that it's not a straight swap and that I'll need a transmission, computer, and cooling system to match the new engine. What I need to know, and what I'm asking, is what else do I need. What other parts, such as drive shaft, rear differential, wiring harness, suspension, ect. will I need to make this work. Also will there be any clearance issues with the engine or transmission? Any help is appreciated

you need to find out if your Truck had an option to come with the V8.. and If so then yes.. if not you will have to fabricate a lot of stuff..

honestly it shouldnt have a problem fitting but you will need to find a way to mount it and clearance on tranny may not match up right i have been wanting to do this with my 5.9 for a while now but cant ever find a hemi someone hasnt messed up when pulling it out
