What year is your truck, what transmission does it have now, and is it 2wd or 4wd?

If it's an automatic, it's a 4R70W. Compatible 4R70W transmissions are a 1999-2003 4R70W out of a 4.2 F150 with the same drive system (2wd or 4wd). If it's a 2wd, a 1999-2003 4.2 van transmission should work. A V8 (4.6 or 5.4) transmission is not compatible, it will not bolt up to your engine, the bellhousing patterns are different. A transmission from a different drive system (2wd/4wd) is not compatible, the tailshaft housings are different. Prior to 1999 and after 2003, the electronics are different. If you have a manual transmission, an automatic conversion is not easy, it involves not only mechanics, but electrics and electronics.

What year is your truck, what transmission does it have now, and is it 2wd or 4wd?
In the future, please answer ALL questions asked. Thank you.
