From what I’ve seen a LML block will go into the older trucks but a LB7/LBZ/LMM block will not mount into the 2011 and newer frame because of motor mount location on pass side. The block doesn’t have the threaded bungs for the further back mount location.

Like the other guys said, the motor mounts won't bolt up to an LBZ block. I've seen it done, but it was a total hack job.
