Not sure on years. But you would have to disassemble both transmissions and swap the output shafts and rear extension housings.

Easily done or not? It's kind of hard trying to locate a 2wd transmission for these trucks

Its easy if a trans guy does it, like me. I do have a 97 trans but it dont have the valve body. 94-98.5 transmissions are hydraulic controlled. 98.5 and up are electronic ones. If you find a hydraulic one, you can swap the valvebody harness from yours, your tailhousing, governer tubes and plug off the governer feed holes in the rear support housing and it will work. Whats wrong with it?
