93/94 have the square dash, 95+ have the smooth round style dash. I think the seats are a little different and part of the rear of cab if i recall right.

Its a 94 I looked up the vin... but I have a question. If its a ohv 02 what oil do I run? Also I know the tranny is gunna be gone within a month or two... I know I can drop it... how hard is it to rebuild it yourself? Or how much does a shop cost if I just slapped the tranny on their desk versus them dropping it and all?

If you do not have a lot of mechanical experience, I would not try to rebuild a tranny.

I would call around to a couple shops and ask them what the cost is. It is probably going to be cheaper with you dropping it because they do not need to remove and replace it.

tranny shops are expensive, dropping it is pretty simple besides those two stubborn top bolts. My uncle owns a garage and he said for instance my 97 2.3 5 speed, for a shop to do it all expect 12-maybe 1400 bucks verses you taking it out would run anywhere from 5-800 bucks, mainly depends on what all is wrong and what pieces need replaced.... I did mine myself ( with his guidance of course ) it was fairly simple, just pay super close attention to how everything comes apart and sometimes you will need special tools.... My honest opinion is to drop it yourself , talk to some people and find a shop that alot of people recomend !!! Good luck......
