yes...even though one is 2wd and the other 4wd the engine itself will interchange

What about the wiring and computer, exhaust system and cooling system?
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 6 years ago.

it will use the exhaust that is on the 2000 and all the other should work fine...worse case would be that you would need to exchange the intake manifold,the computer and all should be just fine
