Awesome! This is definitely something I am going to be doing hopefully next summer when I can work more and save up more dough. What was the hardest part about your swap, you think? I'm gonna have to find a crane for this..haha

Good work dude. This thread should be extremely valuable for any 2.5L owner who doesn't know what a swap entails... This is slogging it out without a blank check and/or a shop doing it for you. This is DIY reality. Good chit.

^ Ditto. You sir have inspired hamster owners everywhere. Wait. What? ( I will be doing this swap once the payments cease.)

Did you install any motor mount lifts? Since you have that 2" BL, it would be pretty easy to do, plus would help your driveline angles a ton
