Default Parts swap between ramcharger and powerram

Hi all. This is a general question for 1st generation. I have a 1990 powerram w250, 5.9 gas. I am having a hard time locating parts (all) and was wondering if parts from a ramcharger would fit? Lokking for items like transmission, suspension, axles, dash components, etc? Thanks.

the suspension and axles might be different since the ramcharger would be a 1500 chassis. but everything else is probably the same

Most RC's were built on a 150 chassis, but there were 250's as well. As for engines and other running gear, it'll all swap. The only issue with interior that I have found is for some reason the instrument panel is different in one aspect. Using the pickup version in an RC yields this one quirk. Pop the rear hatch and since the pickup doesn't have one, the "check engine" light illuminates, where, on the RC panel, it'd say "liftgate open" or something to that effect. Anyway, using the RC panel in a pickup, I'm not sure you'd get a check engine light when you should, not that that's a big deal. I've been running a pickup instrument panel for a couple years now. Despite the fact that the pickups had something on the order of a 20 gallon fuel tank, the gauge reads accurately on my 30 gallon RC tank.

Check your wheel lugs - 5 lugs is a Dana 44/Chrysler 9 1/4 150 chassis setup. 8 lugs would be Dana 60's (good friend of mine from hi skrool took his re-up bonus with the Navy in '89, and ordered a new '90 with Dana 60's!).

Your whole front clip, the doors, the front seats, and dash should all interchange though!
