6.0 out 7.3 in, what's required?

I have a 02 with a nice driveline and a bad body and I have a 04 with a nice body and a bad engine, whats the issues with the swap? I tried searching but really came up with nothing useful, has anyone done this? I thinking only real issues may be with the mounts and such, are they the same? Is the back half(I plan on keeping the 02 dash/wiring for simplicity) of the 04 wiring the same as the 02? Fuel pump and such I mean.

thanks for any guidance here, really looking to know what I'm getting into before I get them both ripped apart

Its not gonna be easy but since you have everything its doable. Complete engine, trans, transfer case, driveshafts, PCM, Wire harness. Fuel pump from 7.3. Gauge cluster from 7.3. Motormounts and everything.

Thats a start

Honestly it would be way easier to swap the bodies. That would be a direct bolt on

Really, I'd still have to gut the 6.0 cab and move all of the wiring/IP/interior over anyway.

I guess my main worry is if the motor mounts from the 7.3 will drop into the 6.0 frame.

I already guessed all of the wiring from the 7.3 would have to be swapped over, what else? Fuel tanks too?

Well, Id prefer to use the newer frame, but will do it however it needs to be done.

Both are CC short bed SRW 4x, oh yeah, and both are the gun metal gray color too! Only difference is 02 had a tow bed on it and is a lariat and the 04 is XLT with stock bed.

Why are you wanting to go to a 7.3 anyways?

It is a LOT of work if you would want to do this. It would be cheaper and easier to make the 6.0 do what you want it to.
