October 9, 2016My 2000 F250 reg cab 4x4, 5.4L, 5spd, manual hubs, w/250k mi. sits in my driveway; bed & body mounts shot, fenders, rockers shot, too much cancer to deal with and then my 2nd engine (1st was the piston slap debacle) craps the bed.
I just picked up a 2000 F250, reg cab, 2WD, auto, same 5.4L with a good body& bed and under 100k miles, runs and looks good. CHEAP.
The two trucks are pretty much identical beyond the power train, manual everything, no A/C
Iâ€™d like to put my front end, tranny and transfer into the 2wd truck, overall itâ€™s frame better shape than mine and the body way better. Have any of you folks done this swap?
Iâ€™ve been searching this topic; most say the mechanical parts will be a bolt up, but the PCM may be troublesome. Would the unit from my 4wd truck plug in?
Iâ€™m planning on changing the instrument panel also, so I have the 4wd indicator and whatever. The wiring harness and connectors will be the same right?
