WRONG. There are A LOT of differences between the two model years, especially a 2003 model year.

SORRY, I’m used to shoving Mod motors into fox bodies and FEs into shoe box Fords. Wires, computers, tight spaces.....its all fun to me. Big diesel....can be figured out. I like challenges.

I just like to figure things out. Again, grab some manuals. Its vehicle, not a rocket ship.... Can’t be too difficult! Different skill sets out there though.

Also, I thought he said 06 to 07.

Impossible, theoretically no. Difficult, YES. Not so much in the nuts and bolts end of things, but getting the electronics worked out to where the modules can "shake hands" with each other to operate in a reliable manner without any gremlins would be where the difficulty lies. Doing so, would require "getting inside" the modules that would fall outside of what can be accessed with Ford's IDS scan tool. About the only other alternative that would achieve making such a swap less painful in the hair pulling department would be if the OP could also obtain the whole vehicle and pirate ALL the modules (GEM, ABS, instrument cluster, etc) to go along with the engine to make it a 2003 truck with all 2007 electronics.

Read again. He said 2007 engine into a 2003. If it were 2006 to 2007, it would be a bolt-in affair, and NOTHING electronic to worry about.
