Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer
Need to know what transmission will interchange with my 98 Blazer 4x4
Sorry but your stuck with the 4l60e if you want it to be right. as for using the bravada transmission thats fine you just have to use your transfer case. your transfer case uses a switch on the dash and an electric motor on the transfer case. the bravada uses a series of sensors on the front and rear axle that sense wheel slippage and send a signal to the electric motor on the transfer case causing it to lock in four wheel drive. when the sensors dont sense wheel slippage any more the system returns to two wheel drive. that,s why they call it smart track. just unbolt your transfer case from your transmission and bolt it to the bravada transmission and install it. p.s- dont forget to at least change the front pump converter seal. for 4 or 5 bucks it,s cheap insurance against a major leak and i dont think you want to pull that transmission out again and yes i saw that happen to many times. good luck.-G.J.M

Your best bet would be another 98 Blazer/Jimmy transmission, or you would want to find the code "8TAD" on the laminated sticker next to the vent tube, or on the underside by where the 2wd transmission mount bosses are. The 96-97, 99-00, and 01-02 Blazer/Jimmy transmissions all have different valve bodies, and separator plates are all different, and in 99 they started to use the deep pan. The 98 was basically a one year only setup for that particular valve body/separator plate setup. You could use safely any 96/98 Blazer/Jimmy transmission. You just want to make sure it has the TAD behind the year (6TAD, 7TAD, 8TAD)
