95 6.5td Suburban transmission

I own a 1995 6.5td 2500 Suburban
I am wondering if anyone knows of a list of vehicles and their years of transmissions that will fit this truck.
Mine I suspect is shot but can not afford to get a rebuild.

you can use any 4L80E 1994 and up. The cooling lines input slightly different on the the 1996 (or 1997) and up. Rather than the two oil cooler lines going directly into the pump, one of the lines enters in the rear section of the transmission case. They also use a quick connect fitting rather than a threaded flare fitting. Either way though, that's the only difference. You can also use a 4L80E out of a gasoline truck from 1994 and up. You will need a low stall diesel torque convereter though.

What are your transmission symptoms? Fill out the check list... maybe all is not lost

I have found a rebuilt trany but before contacting him, I just wanted to get your opinions on something.
He states he has TWO 4L80E transmissions. One for a 2 wheel drive and one for a 4 wheel drive.
Is there a difference between a tranny for a 2x4 and a 4x4 ????

Thanks Guys for any input

The tailshaft is different. The 4x4 trans case has a flange where the transfer case bolts, 2x4 doesn't. They look very different

Thanks primo382 for the response!
I did find a little information about the two different transmissions in that the 2x4 is 31 11/16" in length and the 4x4 is 29" in length

I just want to ensure that if I purchase a transmission, I get the right one!
Don't want to pull mine, put them side by side, and find out they look different

Is your truck a 4x4? The 4x4 tranmission is unmistakeable. You'll immediately see the 2x4 transmission and know there is no way to mate the transfer case.

Yes, the truck is a 4x4 so I will just have to crawl under and take lots of pictures so I can match them up to the tranny to ensure I have one that will work.
You did state earier that the oil lines may be different so I am assuming i just need to get a new line custom made for the oil lines or whould it be normally stocked items at Napa / Lordco?

Also is it true that a transmission for a gasser is different than a transmission from a diesel? Some guy at the following link states "Diesels shift way earlier and only go to 3500 rpm max"

Only difference between a gas and diesel 4L80E is the torque converter and computer......

Does anyone know if a transmission from a 2007 GMC SAVANA with a MT1 4L80E should fit my truck?
I am assuming I would need to change the oil cooler lines as they would have the quick snap connectors.
