    just had a 1995 silverado 2500 ext cab 4x4 shortbed given to me ,needs work .....so here i am guys i need your input and help.
    1.) the trans is a 4l60e ,no reverse,all forward are good.i have a good 700r4 from a 89 silverado 4x4 thats good motor locked.....will that trans work in the 95 and what do i need to do to make it work?

    2.)rear cab corners rusted out bad ,is there a replacement patch or panel for that?

    3.)and what mods would you guys recommend ?

    thank you in advance guys....keith ,the newbie:happy:

    Your best bet is to get the correct transmission. Using the 700 would cause other problems as the engine and transmission are a package and work together.

    isn't the 4l60e just a renamed 700r4 ?......lots of the same parts and all ,so will it work?

    It's exactly the same trans except it's controlled by the PCM along with the engine. The PCM controls the engine economyAND performance with the help of the transmission. Installing a 700 would be like the doctor cutting off one of your legs. You could still hop from point A to point B couldn't you? <G>
