Default 318 engine swap question?

Hi
I apologize if this topic has been covered.
Does anyone know if it's possible to swap a 318 with or without the tranny out of a 1996 ram b3500 cargo van into a Dakota or ram 1500 pickup? I know anything is possible but wondering if it can be done with little or no modifictions? Any info. You guys have on this wouldn't very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
P

Hi and a warm Carolina welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. How about dropping by the Newbie Checkin and introducng yourself then posting a few photos of your truck?

I'm sure if you have the ECM and other computer components to manage the fuel systems, etc. you should be able to make it work.

Great Thanks. Sorry for all the typos and errors. Used my phone.
I'm looking to purchase a new truck to drop the van engine into. I am wondering what years/ models I should be considering.
Thanks again.
Peter
