to make a long story short,i bought a parts truck for my 02 2500,but the parts truck is in way to good of shape to hack up..its a 96 ram 1500 4x4 360 v8 with a np231 case...the trans is missing...i have the valve body with the 8 prong plug...and the rear section of the transmission case(between the t case and bell housing)...i need to know what years fit this truck????96-2001???....everywhere i read is confusing because everyone says different ...can i pull off the rear case on a 2wheel drive and bolt on a transfercase????

the 96 transmission works from 1994-1997, 1998-2001 use the same computer connections, 2002+ use a different wiring harness. for the 1998+ transmission you need the 4wd internals, as the output shaft uses different splines for the 2wd tail shaft compared to the 4wd transfer case.

a 1500 is not a good source of running gear parts for a 2500 or 3500 truck. even though all three trucks use the same transmission, they aren't built equally inside.
