Arrow Is This Part Compatible/Interchangeable?

In response to there being a vast number of questions on whether certain parts are compatible/interchangeable between trim levels or model years, this thread is for those of you looking to do swaps from one truck to another and want to know will it fit? Will this part work on my truck? If you want to know will a bumper from a 1997 fit your 2001, here is where you can find out! All we ask is that questions that are not relevant to the topic be posted in the appropriate section of the forum!

Engine Replacement (318ci/5.2L)
“Any 1992 or newer 318/5.2 Magnum shortblock is a bolt-up affair. Have fun.” (re: 2001 Ram)
Source Thread: http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=124459


5.2 to 5.9L Swap
“The balance weight on a '97 is on the flexplate, so use the 5.9 flexplate and any zero-balance converter (5.2/5.9, 1996 or newer). Use matching computer.” *
* “As long as you're sticking with the same trans I know from experience that it doesn't matter which ECM you use.”
Source Thread: http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=121050
Also…
“i do believe mostly everything is interchangeable but you will need a new fly wheel and harmonic balancer seeing as the 318 is internally balanced and the 360 is externally balanced”

Fuel Pump (Re: 1996)
“looks like in the 1500 series Rams, the fuel pump is the same
(96) 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2L V8 & (96) 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9L V8
Part Number: 1966-07006127
Brand: Airtex
Notes: Fuel Pump Module Assembly
It looks like a few other parts are also interchangeable

Transmission Swap (Re: 2001 318-360 compatability)
“The 46 went "RE" in 1996. Any 1996 or newer 46RE will swap.”
Note: “The number refers to the torque rating. Essentially 42,44= low, 45= medium, 46=high, 48=OMG!
The "R" stands for rear wheel drive. The "E" means electronic valve body, as opposed to the earlier 46RH which had a hydraulic valve body.”
Source Thread:http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=124469
Also… (Re: 99 318-360 compatability)
“Well Mike the trans are interchangeable . But the torque convertors are different . The one from the 5.9 is externally balanced . If you use that in the 5.2 , you will have a vibration from the motor . Yes the rear main is accessible with the trans out . I am a believer , if it's not broke don't fix it .”

Rear Window:
“They are interchangeable as a unit from 94-01. The difference being 94 to 96 has two sliders that meet in the middle. 96-01 has a single slider. I might be a little off on the year, but the footprint is the same if you pull the whole thing and aren't looking to just replace one pane.”
“My '97 has dual sliders. I had thought that the dual slider switched to the single slider in '98 when they redesigned the interior?”
Source Thread:http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=100928&highlight=rear+window+swap


Front Bumper (Chrome):
1996 brackets will not bolt directly to the 2001 frame, however the 2001 brackets will bolt to the 1996 bumper.
This weekend I decided to finally put a straight bumper on the truck - I chose one off of a '96 1500 assuming that this bumper will fit on a truck with the exact same bumper; I was mistaken (as was the salvage yard). When I went home to install the bumper, everything lined up perfect except the front two brackets where the three bolts mount the bracket to the frame.
I removed the '01 brackets off my old bumper and they fit the '96 bumper no problem. THEN everyhting bolted right up.
**Note: I suggest swapping the carriage bolts for hex bolts as vice grips and eventually a grinder were needed to remove the brackets from both bumpers because the carriage bolts just kept spinning.

Dash:
“I believe the 94-97 are the same, 98 on its own (see below), and then the 99-01s.
The 98s are different as they have a cig lighter where the air bag stuff is on the 99-01, easy fix, remove the lighter. Also the 98 has a pull out switch, 99-01s are a turn knob, it still fits but its a smaller opening.”

Headliners:
“Then again not all Gen 2 parts are interchangeable. Take something as generic as a headliner. I tried a '97 in my '95 and it was 4 inches too narrow. I still haven't figured that out.”
