1990 V2500 4x4 Suburban. Driveline Swap

  • Hi everyone. Im a returning member. I used to have an 87 K5 Blazer but got rid of it. I recently bought a 1990 V2500 4x4 Suburban and I'm building it into a Camping/Roadtrip truck. I bought this in Phoenix but it came from Washington State. I believe it used to be a service vehicle for Lake Chelan Parks.

    Here's what she looked like when I started:

    I got a 5.3L engine and a 6L80E transmission out of a 2013 Silverado that was rolled with only 50K on the clock.

    I'm going to start gathering parts to do the install and in the mean time I'm planning to get a wire wheel and grind off all the surface rust under the truck and repaint the areas that need it. I'm planning on spraying the entire underside of the body with Lizard Skin sound deading so I want to make sure I'm not trapping in any corrosion. I'm planning a backpacking trip in Glacier National Park in September, I hope to drive this up there.
