    So it's a 2014 truck when doing an engine swap you can't put an older engine in. So for example you can put a 2002 engine in a 2014 truck.

    As long as you don't try going backward with the emmissions it should be fine.

    Just curious when has anyone ever had their engine serial number checked up against their truck year?

    Cities are on fire, deadly virus,
    People are buying as much guns and ammo as possible, meanwhile people are interested about engine serial numbers matching truck..

    I saw it happen at the Cottonwood scale in California. I was getting a level 1 as was the driver in a Volvo next to me. It was a big deal.
