I have a chance to pick up a dodge ramcharger. The only thing that is good on the truck is the 360 motor tranny and transfer case. I already have a 360 in my jeep but was wonering if it is the same bolt pattern. HOw about the tranny would the tranny bolt up to the dana 300 case? I do not want to swap the t/c in as well if i have to go that far the chevy will be going in sooner than i wanted it to.
thanks

the engines share nothing but the same displacement, if its a ramcharger newer than maybe 1986 its possible the dana300 might bolt up.

pass it up unless its driveable, and well under a hundred bucks : )

the ramcharger will have a TF tranny, but it wont bolt to an AMC V8 the case is different.

I picked a random year, sometime in the early to mid 80s Dodge ( like all other US truck companies) started to use New Process transfer cases instead of Dana/Spicer cases and the bolt patterns/shaft dia/spline count are usually compatible between similar year model New Process products


i was speculating, a dana 300 MIGHT bolt onto some year of a Tf727 from a dodge since a dana 300 will bolt onto a TF727 from any 1980 and Up fullsized Jeep product which used a TF727 tranny

It is possible to use it AFAIK. From what I recall, you have to determine if the tranny is a TF999 or a TF727. I think that both were used... the TF999 probably with the 318, and the TF727 with the 360. If it is a TF727, then you have to tear down the tranny and swap the output shaft out of a Jeep Wagoneer and use the Wagoneer's output adapter. That's a lot of work, but AFAIK it can be done. Of course you'll have to fab the motor mounts, etc. If you have a TF999, which I doubt, then you can use the output shaft and adapter out of a Jeep Eagle.

Anyone with better information is welcome to correct me.

All Ramchargers (4x4 at least) had 727's. My '79 RC with a 318 2 bbl. hat the 727. From what I've heard, the front driveshaft on a swb Jeep will hit the "bump" that the 727 has at the pan (904/999's dont have the "bump") unless you have an extreme lift, like 2" springs and a SOA.

See "360 swap guide" post for putting a 727 into a CJ7.

It makes no difference whether the tranny is a tf999 or a tf727, if it was bolted on a 360 dodge it will not bolt on a 360 amc.
