I recently converted vB 3.8 -> MyBB 1.18. There's a few pitfalls along the way, but they can be fixed rather easily if you know a little MySQL.

1. If your vBulletin database contains a column for "AIM" (AOL Instant Messenger), you will have to manually add the column to mybb_users.
2. Date of birth is stored differently on vBulletin, but the merge script will transfer as-is anyways. I wrote a small PHP script to explode the birthday column in mybb_users and switched around the day and month to match the new schema.
3. IP addresses are stored as-is in vBulletin, but as hex in MyBB. I made a small PHP script to convert them all in one go.

It won't transfer everything, for example, I had to do reputation by hand by making a script that did its best to make it all fit. The most important stuff transfers over no problem though. Good luck and save often.
