there are lots. you would have to be specific. they have not change much body wise between 1974 and 1993. i don't think the have changed much with the running gear either.

He said different gen. 74-93 is first gen. 94-?? is 2nd.

In THAT case... probably not much. Wheels maybe?

i missed a word while reading. i don't think there is any interchangable parts. i think they started using 16"tires in 94 with the sames bolt pattern. if they did bolt on there might be some rubbing in the front. what where you thinking about doing?

Is the suspension different front and back? could i use 2/3gen ram parts, would they bolt up?

would the seats from 2/3 gen fit in our cabs?

Im guessing the engines are the same expect most of our
carbureted and 2/3 gens are fuel injected, would the heads/headers
be changeable?

Gen 2 V8's would be Magnum motors.

Snippet from moparmusclemagazine:

Making the change to Magnum heads is a simple swap. All stock components can be used, however, Magnum engines oil the valvetrain through the pushrods as opposed to LA-style engines. Since all Magnum engines were equipped with factory hydraulic-roller camshafts, using the Magnum heads in conjunction with an LA block and a hydraulic flat tappet cam requires custom-length pushrods. Mopar performance sells a pushrod kit for this application (PN P5007477)

I believe it was 92 and 93, but maybe just 93. the 318 is Magnum from the factory. That's one of the reasons I say 93 is the best Ram made.

edit:
My point, the engines from the early 2nd gens should swap over relativly easily. The wireing harness and computer may be a differant issue though.

they use 16" tires in 93 and also 93's have 360 magnum fuel injected, and 2nd gen axle's are a little wider than 1st gen but sometimes you can more the spring pads. my dads 96 rear diff would not work for my 93..we could have made it work but to much work in mods.
