I don't think the tranny will swap correctly since its 3.0/4.0 but I could be wrong.

well you could swap the engines but you would have to more than likely come up with a 4wd tranny that fits a 4.0 i would do it and i got a 99 4x4 automatic and i went from a 96 2wd manual and all that i notice is it sits up off the ground hire cause they both were extened cabs

and what is the 99 a auto or manual apposed to your 97
