I'm going to do the same thing in the next year or two. I have a 97 Dakota R/C with a 3.9L and I found that the main 2 thing's that I'm going to have to replace is the engine wiring harness and the computer. I'm going with a 360 maybe a supercharger with it.

I have done the swap ..... dont forget the V8 coil springs in the front end ... the V6 ones wont hold the weight of the V8 right ... you will have handling problems
