Timing covers interchange ??

Hi Guys,
So here's my situation, I am putting together a temp motor for my 2003 Ram 5.7 (motor now blown), I got a 2006 5.7 out of a Jeep ($100), I already started putting together, It sucked a couple valve seats, I already have a set of rebuilt heads, I honed the 2 bad cylinders, replaced the 2 buggered up pistons, got a new oil pump (6.1) I have to change the timing cover since it's different, my question : The 2003 timing cover is discontinued, will a 2006 ram timing cover fit ? I know it will fit the block, but will it work with all my accessories ?
Yes , I could take the one off my bad motor , but it's still on the truck. I'd like to get the new timing cover on and harmonic balancer on before I yank the old motor.
So will a timing cover off 2006 ram work with my water pump and accessories ?
Thank You

That's what I found too, it is a 2006 cover so I just wanted to be sure before I purchased it.
