Would love to see your pdf of info. I have been collecting it myself, but I definitely don't have that much yet. Your preparation shows in the organized way you were able to do this swap.
Thanks, I'll try to post a link to the pdf I built.

I spent a long time compiling the notes, maybe a few months of reading through the forum and such. I bought my donor in March/April or something, but didn't even start tearing it apart until September. I spent nights and weekends throughout September prepping the donor. I then spent nights and weekends throughout October tearing apart the suburban and rebuilding it. I finished what you see here last Sunday.

So, two months of nights and weekends between the donor and the suburban, but months of reading and prepping myself, and collecting parts. I had all the parts I needed sitting in the garage when I dove into the donor.
