Before everyone here jumps all over you for just joining and not doing a search...you really should do a search on this subject. Like 2 people are doing this exact swap right now. It isn't as simple as whether a 5.7 or 5.9 will bolt up. Just search for hemi swap or swap.

2006 Charger R/T "Little Red" & 2003 Ram 1500 QC Hemi Lonestar "Big Red" SRT-10 suspension and rear, Superchips, AiRaid, Taylor shorties, McGaughy's shackles, Borla cat-back, SRT hood, TMR delete, Daytona lip, tow mirrors.

i'd just get another 4.7, unless your really know your wiring and have time on your hands, and you would have to get the computers for the engine

leveled, 35x12.50R18 Nitto Trail Grappler's on CR Black Iron Villian's, Blistein 5100's, K&N drop-in air filter, Magnaflow exhaust, Blue LED dash. LED everything!
