You need to know what engine you have. The truck should not have a 5.3 LS series engine, unless a person installed that and removed the OE engine

You will need a 1995 or 1996 trans 4L60E 4x4 trans for a direct bolt in replacement. the 1995 - 1996 units have a early PWM lock up design.

1997 trans will work with a solenoid change of the 3-2 solenoid to the proper ohm rate for the 1995 trans.

If the trans case broke, I would suggest looking for a cause. Often bad mounts are a cause
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.

I have heard of transmission crossmembers rusting out on those trucks... I'd scout a donor in a junkyard and take the crossmember and all.. even the carrier bearing crossmember if you have a carrier bearing
