2500 or 3500 engine swap into 4500

I have a 2009 Dodge Ram 4500 Cab and Chassis, the engine started knocking and I am looking to put a used engine in it. I have talked to several junk yards that say you can't put the 2500 or 3500 engine into a cab and chassis truck. I don't see what the major difference is? Can you put the regular truck engine into the cab and chassis? I feel like they are just trying to charge me extra for the cab and chassis engine.

A knocking engine is a death sentence? Fixing knocking is harder than swapping the motor from a different truck!?!?

Maybe I’m missing something here but this doesn’t add up in my head.

Just seems wasteful, but sure go for it.

You will need all of it, engine, trans, computers, likely more. I don’t think the guy was trying to pull a fast one on you saying no don’t do it.

I wouldn’t half ars it personally, I would rebuild the motor you have.
