2.3 conversion to 3.0

i have a free 3.0 and the head on 2.3 needs done. would it be easier to swap the 3.0? are the wiring harnesses and tranny's the same? or should i get the head done and cam it a little? the truck has 190,000 miles on it, should i just get the block redone at the same time too?

don't swap to the 3.0... you will be disappointed in its performance... just rebuild the 2.3 and put a cam in it... reeally wakes 'em up!
