I got a 01 4x4 Suburban and i want to swap in a 4l80. From the research i've done it seems pretty involved and I'm equipped to do it but is it worth it or should I just get a 2500?

You're probably best off just getting a 2500. While it can be done, it's a lot of effort. Also, what is the reason behind wanting a 4L80e? If it's for towing, then the brakes and upgraded suspension of the 2500 makes it a better towing vehicle. The 4L60E is a capable transmission if it's not abused. For moderate towing, as long as it has a tow package (including hitch and tranny cooler) it should last quite awhile.
