This has been done with a 2002, so it can be done with a 2003 (the prototype was built on a 2003 for the car show). The Dana 60 will bolt in, but did you get a reg cab set or quad cab set? Makes a difference on where the springs attach. Reg cab SRT's are pre-lowered from the factory, so the spring perches are under it like a leaf sprung car, plus they have special leaf springs. The quad cab SRT's mount on top like a regular 1500. You will need a custom driveshaft, length depending on whether you got an automatic or manual trans (again, auto=QC, stick=RC). If you go to do this, let me know, as I have a brand new transmission slide yoke in the box for one of these trucks, it'll save you some $$ when you go to get the custom driveshaft you WILL need. Engine mounts will be slightly different, but once you have the right mounts they should bolt the to the ember no problem, same with the transmission (48RE or T56). Hope you found a full harness to go with it. Highly recommend beefing the suspension with the SRT springs and brakes, since the brakes on the SRT axle will be bigger than your stock fronts. The rear brakes on a Ram SRT-10 are bigger 2 piston calipers than the stock 1500 front brakes. The fronts on the 05-06 SRT's are 4 piston calipers on 15" rotors. I have all of these and they are farking HUGE and they WORK.
