To add a little detail to Curtis73, you will see on the driver side of a 4L80E trans a little shaft poking out, on which a shifter linkage is connected/can be connected. You cannot just connect your truck shifter to this shaft to run the trans, it will not work: this shaft is just a switch, allowing you (with your traditional shifter) to tell the computer in which gear you want to be; the actual gear shifting is then done by the computer, inside the trans.
