This guy on Youtube got a 2022 Tahoe PPV from auction. Evidently it had frame damage so he goes through the process of transferring everything to a new frame and installing the body on that new frame. It was fun to watch the process and to see how everything goes together. He's able to do the whole job in his driveway with basic tools and a tractor. Here's one of the videos - you can find the rest of the videos on his page if you search "Tahoe" - I think there's 5 in total.

That is pretty cool! I'll have to check out the other videos, but from what I see, I don't see a damaged frame or body. Must have been some final build check that condemned it?

I think I would figure out how to fix the frame before doing all that. But Toyota was replacing frames on thousands of Tacomas so it can be done reasonably.

What frame damage? Replace the bumper and keep going.

Unles somebody along the line was setting up a sweetheart deal for a pal, and this guy got it instead.
