    As long as they are the same model transmission (4L60E), you should be fine.

    Idealy you will need one from a 1994-1995 since they are the only years that the 4L60e came in the OBD1 trucks. I am not 100% certain but i believe the wiring is different for any of the newer models.

    I don't know enough of the specifics, but I've seen it said in several places on the internet (some I even consider reasonably knowledgeable) that '95 is its own year for the 4L60E. It seems that most of the issues surround the valve body and electronic shift controls (These guys point out the differences in the valve bodies: http://www.valvebodybuilders.com/gm_4l60e1995only.html). However, it's not clear to me that it would be as easy as swapping valve bodies, either, because no one ever answer with, "just be sure to use a '95 valve body, and you can use whatever 4L60E you want." If it was that easy, it wouldn't be a big deal.

    If you want a simple "plug and play" replacement, you're best choice will be to stick with a '95 4L60E. If you are willing to do the research, you might find ways to retrofit other 4L60E's into your '95. At this point in my "research/knowledge," I doubt that it would be an easy retrofit if it is even possible.
