Yes 2003-2008 are for sure interchangeable! Only diff is that late 2006+ has mds just leave them in there unplugged and your good to go.

You will need a strategy to deal with the mds using a non-mds engine. Cmr tuning may be able to turn off the MDS.

If your truck had no mds and new one does simply leave solenoids in and unplugged and your good to go. If it's backwards you would need to swap the lifters from the old engine or tune the mds out

Can the MDS be tuned out using cmr tuning?

Then that answers the question. The 05 engine can be swapped into the 06. What year did they change the tone ring?
