Generally with a domestic engine (if Dodge can still be called domestic) the answer is yes. The closer you stay to the vehicle year the less chance you have of a problem. You also are likely to be able to use more of the accessory parts that come with the replacement engine. Things like sensors, switches and manifolds. Staying with the same vehicle also gives you more reusable parts. To really get a good answer you would need to be specific about what year you want to use. Some of the ways you can find out for yourself are to contact a salvage yard because they have interchange guides and they can tell you if it will fit. A lot of times they can answer the question without looking it up because they do a lot of that kind of sales. If you want to figure it out for yourself then just take a good look at your block and the way it bolts in. Then do a visual comparison. On the Asian engines I learned the hard way that you have to be very careful. You can also go to your local machine shop and ask them. They get to be pretty good at knowing when the core engine parts (blocks, heads) change.
