Default 3.9 to 3.7 swap

I was given a 2000 1500 which originally had a 3.9, the engine is gone(along with most of the wiring), but the transmission is still their, I have access to a 2005 1500 donor truck with a 3.7 engine and manual transmission, I lnow the auto trans from the 3.9 will physically bolt up to the 3.7, but what about motor/frame mounts? And what other issues should I espect to have to address?

I don't have the answer you want, but in all seriousness, if you are going to do a swap then go to a v8(hemi). mpg won't be much worse and you will have so much more power.

Otherwise replace with the same engine to avoid all the trouble.
