5.3 donor truck, what to grab???

I know nothing about the 5.3 swaps, but I have the chance to pull a good running 5.3, and anything else I need, out of a 99 silverado. Anybody have any suggestions on what all to grab out of the truck? Thanks in advance.

main things you'll need are engine with accessories...trans...wiring harness ,unless your using aftermarket...the ecm, maf.might want the o2 sensors but you may need different ones with different should be dbc but if its dbw youll need the whole pedal assembly....its nice to keep the donor around if you have storage room for it though...
