Thanks again!!

look at your 4L80e trans... electrical connector on the driver's side for a retaining bolt in the center of the connector. 1998 is a plug / clip on design with no retaining bolt. You would need to update the wire harness connector I am sure

Look at cooler line fittings. 1998 has different location and design of cooler fittings.

Check length on 2 wd transmission. The HD 2wd trucks used a 1 inch longer tail & out put shaft.
