Making an 00 into an 01 ...

Recommended Posts

I have read many threads on engine swaps but I'm wondering if you were to get a donor 2001 and used the engine,  transmission,  ECM and even the dash , would it be almost a plug and play without modifications  ?

I ask because a salvage/roll over 01 can be picked up for less then a grand , so it would be time consuming but a cheep upgrade to the 3.5

The transmission would be the easy part. If it’s 2wd to 2wd you’re good and 4wd to 4wd you’re good. Just swap the main bell housing... you don’t even need to put a new trans in there unless you want to. But as far as electronics go, I have a feeling that’s gonna be a can of worms judging by my experiences. Power window switches change from year to year so I can’t imagine what kind of hidden surprises exist with climate control, seats, air bags etc.

WOW ....didn't think that far ...I was told the climate control was different and that you needed to swap the whole dash and shift console but was not sure on anything else . Iam starting to rethink this plan , LOL ...when I started looking at performance upgrades to my 3.3 it was getting expensive.
