Question 7.3 Transplanted to 5.4/6.8 Rust Free Body?

Sadly my Ex is now to the point where I need to make a decision. I need to either repair my Ex or find a rust free 5.4/6.8 body and migrate my 7.3 drivetrain to the rust free body. Talking with some other folks it appears there may be a concern regarding other aspects of such a transplant. Wiring harnesses are one concern. Or maybe even the only concern? Suspension and drivetrain modifications not withstanding.

Has anyone attempted this feat or have any input into why this would not work?

I know the under hood wiring harness will need to go with the engine. Will the under dash fuseblock and wires need to go? Will the fuel lines need to be added/replaced?
