Richard, the problem you'll have is the tone rings. You have a JTEC PCM which use 16 tooth tone rings. In the late '02-03 model year they went to the NGC PCM, 32 teeth. They are not compatible.

To change the tone ring would require pulling the crank.

I have a 2002 dakota with the 3.9. I want to step
up to a V8 but was wanting to know which would be
the easiest and best to put in it. Also, would it
be better to look for a donor vehicle or could i
just get motor and trans. that is already out.
Thanks for any info on this

Isaac: it's likely a tone ring issue from different year engines. On the RH cam look for NGC stamped in the sprocket. If you see it, your PCM MUST have 4 connectors. If it has 3, you're out of luck and need to pull the engine and replace the tone rings.

Michael, put in the 5.9. It's almost a direct bolt in. You can find a PCM for it. The harnesses should match up.

The 4.7 is NOT an easy swap. There are major differences electrically.

OK thanks for the info. While looking around though
I found a 3.9 Cummins diesel. Would that be a
fairly easy swap as well? I can get a good deal on
a running driving donor vehicle on either the 5.9
or the diesel as I have found both. Just wanting to
kinda go outside the box a little

I have a 94 dodge Dakota with a 318 in it that's bad and so is the trans. My friend has a drivetrain out of a jeep that had a 318, would this swap work with all the computers and everything from the newer jeep or should I reuse all the old comps from the Dakota?
