I believe the swap will work as long as both trucks have 5.9's in them . The flywheel for the 5.9 is externally balanced . I'm looking to do the same conversion on my '01 .

You will have to put in a pilot bushing. And I think a different fly wheel. Also the trans you have should be a nv 4500. It dsnt have sincronizer and you can start in 2nd gear when not hauling. Unlike the manual that's in the standard 1500. Nv 3500.
