    physically, yes. But not necessarily function. the 97 computer may not run the engine and would need to be changed in that case, the truck will not have the fancy computer interfaces the 01 computer will support and therefore not all the functions, and the 97 may need a new wiring harness for the engine compartment with the computer.

    Computer control makes it tough to go that far apart in years for a doner vehicle
