you should be able to, but there are somethings you are going to have to switch. the 94 is OBD1 and the 98 is OBD 2 so there is a computer difference. so all the sensors and wiring are going to have to be changed, or swap parts between the 2 engins. as far as the basic engine parts them selves they are interchangeable. the only thing I would suspect you would have to change the intake manifold between the 2 engines then the old engine should be able to plug in.

I personally would take the whole drive line out as one Engine/Transmission/Transfer case and transplant it into the good body truck. This way you can remove the wire harness and computer from the bad body truck and put it all into the good body truck and not have any shifting issues due to a different computer or possible different transmission.

I recently did a project like this and it makes life a whole lot easier when you do a big picture project rather than hunting down detail crap between the two trucks.
