Diference between 1996 & 1998 47RE?

Can anyone tell me the differences between a 1996 and 1998 47RE?

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.

My 1997 2wd 47RE had 1 speed sensor plug in the overdrive section and nothing else.
2 plug ins on the main section, drivers side.
