4L80E is not a direct swap from a 4L60E trans.
From your description... the current trans has a broken sun shell. No reverse , long time to shift ; indicates the trans is skipping 2nd gear and hitting 3rd gear. A broken sun shell produces NO reverse and NO 2nd gear and NO 4th gear.
A 2WD trans needs the output shaft changed to a 4x4 output shaft to bolt in place of a 4x4 trans...
