Just my two cents, I just did a swap on my 03. I search high and low for a used engine. Almost bought a entire used truck for the parts, but every test my mechanic used. Made my search come up short. The best used engine I could get was 1800 with less then. 100,000. My enigine went out at 106,000. So It didn't make sense to me to pull the trigger. Finally found this place To be honest, I was ready to give up and move to the other side. My mechanic went back and forth checking with the company. He convinced me to go ahead a purchase this remanfactured for 1900 This still may be my last ram, but I must admit it runs like a beast! Added a better oil pump and a torque converter, it will be my sons in a couple of years. Never again will I go down this road. I thinks it worth looking into. Talking to my mechanic and Tom from accurate engines they knew everything that is wrong with the engine, I just wanted the truck to run. That It does!
