Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 Dodge Durango with a 318 motor I am trying to use for parts to
fix various things on my 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Magnum with a 360 motor. Is
the Thermostat interchangeable? Headlight assemblies? Window motors?
Brake Booster? Interior Dash? These are the immediate things I am trying to

Only way to know for certain is to compare them side-by-side for fitment and then boil the old one in a pot of hot water to ensure it opens like it should at the proper temperature, but why bother going to all that trouble to recycle an old part when you can get a new one so cheaply? As to the rest, I rather doubt headlight assemblies and interior dash will work for different models more than 5 years apart. But again, only way to know for sure, short of having a dealerships computer in front of you, is to compare parts for fitment.
