Ok, I have been searching for hours and do not want to create yet another thread on this subject but... I have a 2000 Dakota RC 2WD 5 speed ( my d.d.) and a recently acquired 1999 Durango 5.2 with a blown transmission. I have wanted to do the swap for a few months and I am now ready. My questions are... Can anyone point me in the direction of a known post / thread on a detailed build? Since this is my d.d. I want to knock it out in one weekend. I have the manpower to do it. I have the complete Durango to scavenge from. Is it easier to swap the harness or splice for the 7 / 8 injectors? Will the 1999 ECM work in my 2000? Do I use the 5.2 or 3.9 flywheel? Starter issues? I guess that will do it. I work in the repair business and have replaced engines plenty but never swapped a v6 out for a v8 and don't want to get ahead of myself. Again, didn't mean to post about a much talked about subject but I was getting no where with looking around. Thanks and any info would be greatly appreciated. :deadhorse:.
