92 dodge Dakota

Hello im new to here I've actually just got a question. Myself and my boyfriend bought a 2 wheel drive 92 dodge Dakota v6 3.6l and we did something stupid and took it to the river we fried the ecm and now were looking to replace it. I want to know if you can use one from a 4x4 if its two wheel drive. I know you can use one from any yr from 92-95 but not sure if you can use one from a 4x4.

no. ECMs are drive specific, as they are involved into transmission operation via TCM - transmission control module. You prolly can swap it out for same year, model, and engine size, but drivetrain must be identical on both cars.

Simplest thing to do is to check the part numbers, if they match it will work, if they don't it won't.
