The 07 and up uses a different bus, different PCM. Pretty sure youd be best off swapping to a 05-06 harness to best match your truck. Id advise swapping to 5.7 PCM and all so you have the benefits of better tuning support if you absolutely cant wait for Diablo. I dont think this swap has been done on a WK before, plenty of Rams have done it. Buzz me if/when you need a tune...

When I considered doing this, they told me I'd need an exact year model swap. I would need to get the PCM from that engine along with the harness. You would prob need an '06 from what they told me.

And are the trannys the same for the 4.7 and 5.7?
