From reading around ( i wish to also swap up) the transmision should hook up, you need a wiring harness from the hemi truck, the pcm, the tcm and ecu , the tcm has to match the style of your truck or 4x4, you also need new engine mounts, the easiest way to go about this is to use a hemi and parts from a 2003 Hemi...should be around 3000 for everything, also exhaust needed and the 03 uses a different style throttle body, uses wire not cable like the 02, so either convert your accelerator or throttle body to use cable

The 4.7 and the 5.7 Hemi are the only two engines that currently use the 545RFE transmission. I'm not completely sure, but i believe the rear engine apron bolt pattern is the same.
However, there is a difference between a 545RFE in the 4.7 and the Hemi. For one, I believe the input shaft is bigger.

aaaand they are a horrible idea in most circumstances, unless your tires rub somewhere all the spacers will do is cause increased wear on suspension components and wheel bearings. The "look" isn't worth the pain.
