Changing transmission question.

I'm replacing my transmission in my 97 laredo. I have a 95 that is just the base model and it has a different transfer case than my laredo. Would that transmission still work in the 97 or would I need to also swap the transfer case over? Thanks in advance for your help.

Trans. are the same, whatever transfer case doesn't matter one bit.

You say your 95 is a base model, so I assume it has an I6, so it's going to have a 42RE transmission.
If your 97 is an I6 it will also have a 42RE. If it's a V8 it will have a 44RE.

This isn't really my area of expertise, but it's my understanding that the two transmissions are almost identical, with the 44RE having some stronger parts.

Since your 95 is ODBI and your 97 is ODBII, the computers are going to be different, so I would check and see if there are any differences in the transmissions themselves that might cause problems on that front.
