Badass swap man, i got the 3.9 liter too, if you do end up doing a swap and have any performance parts on your 3.9 that you want to get rid of let me know, good luck.

You want to upgrade your 3.9 to a 5.9 at a time like this (with gas prices so high)? Haha I'm actually buying a daily driver in the next couple of days so I don't have to drive my 5.9 on a daily basis, it is at the point where i'm fed up with pulling into a gas station every other day. However, I doubt the swap would be a hard thing to pull off...good luck with it!

Get a hold of Schumacher at 206-364-7151 and ask for their engine swap book. Tell them what your wanting to do and they will let you know what is needed.

The swap is straight forward but it will require some time and a wallet full of cash. I would first get the book then start looking around in the bone yards for some parts.

yap, it is a straight forward swap. best way to do it is o find a doner Dakota, Ram or a van with a 5.9, grab EVERYTHING... motor/trans/harness and ECM.

www.engineswaps.com (Schumacher) does make it easier with all the mounts and stuff (the mounts should be avail now). takes a bit of cash and some time.
