02-05 vs 06-08
 
I had a question. As far as I can tell the engine and chassis from the 02-05 and the 06-07 4.7 liters are the same? am I wrong?

for example, would 02-05 headers or lowering kits work on my 07?

If not could someone please explain the differences to me because I can't find any.

SHould be the same. The body style is DR for all the years you listed and the 4.7 wasn't significantly changed until '08.

awesome! thanks for answering me so fast haha.

has anyone done this? or have any other information on 02-05 parts on an 06-08?

The biggest differences are cosmetic and to the network system which the modules use to communicate. '06 and newer use a CAN bus system and the older model DR body trucks use a PCI bus.

Yea all I knew about was the cosmetic stuff (grille, lights and such)

that other stuff shouldn't really effect the use of older year model's parts though would it?

RamTech 02-22-2010 04:08 PM

No, not as far as the things you mentioned go.

Cool. Thank you so much for information, I really do appreciate it.
