Block and heads will be the same as the ram. There may be some differance with sensors or cam not that cam will make a diffence to the truck. Just don't throw away the old eng before your done. Its best if you can look at both of them side by side to see what needs to be swaped from one to the other but as far as block and heads there same.

Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

Cam is same too. The sensor connectors changed with OBD II in '96, but just use the ones for your truck.
