Q: Installing new gadgets into older truck

asked by on

Is it possible to install the options and packages from a 2016 ram sport into a 2013 ram sport? Convenience group, some tow options, 8.4 navigation, start/stop button, etc......

You more than likely cannot move items from the newer truck to the older one since the computer in the older vehicle cannot operate the newer options for electronic items. The computers on the vehicles are not the same so the parts would likely not function once swapped onto the car.
