Express van for Duraburb swap?

I believe the transmission is a 4l85, but will the motor, wiring, and cluster be the same? It might be cheaper to snag one of those and just grab an LBZ transmission somewhere else.

No, the wiring harness is different.

You will be making lots of totally unnecessary headaches for yourself....just find an LLY or LBZ pickup truck harness and it will basically be plug and play.

Finding an LBZ has been a huge pita :<

And you'd be limited to one of a fairly small number of '06 or '07 vans. 2008MY+ vans have the newer electrical system that is incompatible with your 2003 Yukon.

Several other things on the engine itself are different too, so you'd still have to scrounge up those parts and swap them.

Also, the van ECM uses a different operating system, and I don't know if you can change to a pickup truck OS without changing other parts (I doubt it).
