I can only tell you that on a 2wd there is a difference in some years. My 1997 has 2 electrical plugs in the overdrive section. Some later models only have 1 electrical plug. I think the difference was because the speedometer sensor was moved to the rear axle. I would assume the 4x4 had a similar difference but perhaps not. I do not know the year that changed but that is the only real difference to be concerned with.

1997 3500 club cab 3.54 gears towing & camper pkg. Still stock with a built transmission at 120k. 4" exhaust, 4kgsk, and exhaust brake waiting for installation. 37337 upgrade. Still need ideas for improvements for hauling 15k fifth wheel.
