    Water pump went out on highway and I think it has a cracked head because coolant is pouring out the exhaust pipe.

    I know someone with a low mileage 5.9 engine out of a 1999 ram, so does anyone know if the 5.9 will bolt up to the 4.7 transmission?
    Also any other foreseeable problems you may think of to give me an idea of what headaches I might encounter

    360 isn't gonna work in your truck lol. It wasn't even option that year. You'd have an easier time putting a hemi in.
