I have a ujointoffroad 2002 E350 7.3L cargo van w/o RSC and the body is starting to really rust… there is still a bunch of minor body damages. I want to just go ahead and buy another van and take the body off to replace the one I have. Can I put, let’s say, a 2012 E350 XLT body on my 2002 e350 frame? If I’m having to redo the whole body, I would like some of the features (power windows, door locks, mirrors) that the newer model has.

Welcome to he FFO!

If the wheelbase is the same it may be possible. The issue is going to be wiring and controls. Some of the body controls are integrated into the PCM. The 10 year differences are not compatible.
Changing sheet metal is one thing. Changing wiring and vacuum (HVAC) is asking for issues.
