02 2500hd 6.0L to LB7/Body swap

New Project Time!
So i did some searching and couldn't exactly find what i need or i suck at searching.

I have an 02 2wd RCLB 2500hd w/ 6.0l and 4l80e - Pile of garbage that i picked up for 500 bucks but its complete runs and drives

I have an 02 lb7 engine, 2wd allison trans, ECU, TCM, wiring harness for everything, gauge cluster, intercooler, radiator, piping, steering column, trans crossmemeber, and lots of other random items. I bought the pile of parts from a guy who was going to swap into a square body so he kept everything that would possibly be needed for the swap. Been laying in my garage for over a year waiting for me to figure out what to do with it. Basically got it all for free in the end.

Sooo i'm wondering engine mounts....What are my options? I assume the 6.0l ones are different? Could i bolt the stock lb7 ones to the frame? Will i need to look into welding aftermarket ones on?

https://www.hitechclassics.com/produ...kets-2001-2014 Not exactly sure if these are anything helpful or just for "older" applications??

Alot of these duramax swap projects bring comments about how just look for a duramax already in a truck......welll don't comment....i understand how much $$ and pain in my a$$ work i'm getting into....so lets just stick to building something fun and possibly a stupid waste of my money!

As a side note the body is getting tossed out and something unique is getting put on.....haven't decided yet but its look like a 60's IH travellall or travelette. Yes i know frame modification will be happening.

Thanks! Ill upload pics as soon as i get some.

01 LB7 CCSB 250k. 20% injectors, Built Trans, MBRP 5", Bill's Turbo Horn, Air Dog 165, DSP5 w/PPE tune
