94+ Chev 2500 5-spd

I have an opportunity to buy a 5-spd trans from a 94 up ? chev crew cab.
My intended purpose is to replace the ol 4-spd currently in my 79 c-10.
I am wondering if anyone here might know the gear ratios of this tranny, particularly the fifth gear--is it an OD trans?
I looked under the truck and it has a separate bell housing, and appears to have the same tranny/bellhousing bolt pattern as mine. It also has provisions for PTO. I know that I would have to get another speedometer as this tranny has a sensor as opposed to a cable (perhaps a gear could be installed into the tranny?)
The tranny appears to be a bit longer than the one in my truck now--perhaps I can go to a 1-piece driveshaft.
The guy wants $350 for it--and as opposed to 2k for another TKO, I am thinking that this is not too bad a price--for a tranny that will hold up to the towing that I use the 79 1/2 ton for.

The 79 has a 454 in it so it can use all the help it can get on the hiway with the price of fuel today.
