I would imagine it could be done, you would like be better to ask in the Facebook Aztek community. This forum has all but died, and everyone that is active is there.

So I recently went to visit Crete, and I needed to hire a car for a week. I looked at all the multi-nationals, but everyone told me to look at local companies. So I did some research and this is what I found for the top Car hire companies in Crete

I had the greatest fun last winter when I was in Iceland. I met someone who showed me some of his cars and lo and behold, he had a 2004 Limited edition Aztek amongst a few other cars. I had great fun driving it around in the snow as well.

Thought I'd share some Driving in winter in Iceland tips here.

With those type of miles, why not just swap the entire power train?
I do plan to swap the full powertrain, though honestly even poring over the shop manuals, I'm a bit unclear which components have to be removed before removing the engine/transmission (My previous experience is all with carbureted Ford vehicles that you have to take more or less everything off before removing the engine just to get it to fit out of the hood hole(?). The list above was meant to be in reference to parts I will be installing new, rather than picking from one of the two cars.

I would not even bother with the timing chain. These dont have the nylon gears, and are known to last the life of the engine.
With a 79k mile engine, your only concern is head gaskets really,
Huh, didn't know this. I've seen long road trip preps (10-15k mile +) that include changing this out, and as that's where I plan to go long-term, I thought it might be a good thing to do now...

and you could do that while the engine is out, driving your current Tek until you have the complete assembly ready to go in. Its what I would do personally. The only things you want to make sure you swap over, assuming one of the engines even has it, is the towing package oil cooler, and the towing package alternator.

I would do this as a complete 1 piece drop out and install.
This is the exact plan. Glad to see I'm on the right track.

I would seriously consider replacing the rack and pinon and lines if the engine is out and never been done before or appear to be seeping and/or leaking. Doing it with the engine in the car is a pain. Also take a good look at the hard brake lines and fuel lines as they should be extremely easy to reach right now.

When I had the heads torn down for gaskets I addressed these issues to save some headache down the road. Hope this helps.
Fortunately, I replaced the rack and pinion a few dozen thousand miles ago, and I can attest to the difficulty.
Ill take a look at all the lines when I eventually drop for the final swap, but as the Mudmobile is my daily driver, it will be waiting for a while yet.

No problem. Mine won't be done til next summer I'm sure. While I have all the drivetrain out I will be fixing some rust and doing some prevention on the underbody as well.
