'97 drivetrain upgrades

I own an all original '97 F350 crew cab 4x4 with the 7.3 and automatic transmission with 230,000 miles. I have the opportunity to buy a similarly equipped but totaled 03 F350 with 105,000 miles on it for $5,000. I was originally just looking at doing an engine swap, but now I'm thinking engine, transmission, transfer case, etc. I don't intend to swap my Dana 60.
What all can be swapped over, and why should I or shouldn't I?
Thanks,

It all can be swapped if you have the time and money.

I presume that the 03 has the 7.3, if not I would forget it.

But by the time you are done all you will have as far as you 97 is the body.

Don't swap just one axle, unless you want different lug pattern wheels front to back. 99 and up are 8 on 170mm versus the earlier 8 on 6.5 inch pattern.
