HemiRam-Quad is on a distinguished road
Default 2002 Ram Hemi Swap

This is the story from the beginning .About Two years ago I bought a 2001 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab from a friend . As I was driving it home it lost oil pressure , so I pulled it over , shut it down , waited five minutes and started it back up. The oil pressure was normal for another 5 to 10 miles then dropped to ZERO again and started a major headache. It could not be trusted. So I put it in the yard and started searching for a motor. I didn't know exactly what kind of motor I was searching for , but I knew I didn't want to put another 4.7 back in it..
I had a nice race car behind the house that caught the attention of a man who had a wrecked 04' Rumble Bee he was about to take to the crusher..
He stopped by and we traded his motor and trans. out of the Rumble Bee for the race car I payed $400. for three weeks earlier..
I put the 5.7 Liter Hemi in the Dakota Quad Cab.That build thread is on *************** "HemiDak-Quad" I also have a burn out on Youtube.com. Hemi powered Dakota.
It took Almost a year to build this truck the way I wanted it..Three months after I put my Dakota on the road , an IDIOT pulled out in front of me at the start of a drizzly rain when the road became as slick as ICE. It totaled my efforts three states away..As seeing my Dak. made me sick on a daily basis I searched for another truck~Car~or something to put my Hemi motor in. Finally came across this..2002 4.7 powered Four door Ram..
So here we go again this is where a Ram with a blown 4.7 get's a 2004 Rumble Bee motor and 545rfe transmission. If I can get my pics to post on this sight , I will. If not maybe I can get someone to post them for me..
BTW , My Dakota build thread has a LOT of info like ECM ~ TCM Pin~Outs, and other info someone might find useful...

Getting the Hemi out of the Dak. was more of a pain than getting it in. I broke two coils and busted the valve cover..

Next was the wiring , I had some experience with this part from building the Dakota .. I upgraded by using a 04' ECM and eliminating the TCM when I built the ram..

This project is all but done. I have to add a front left wheel speed sensor , freon the A/C and figure out why my interior light don't work to be finished..
