It should. But they may have changed the programming and connectors over the years. The programming can be managed using a programming tool. The connectors would be a little difficult, though.

The programming is in the control module. You would need a programming tool connected to the diagnostic connector.

Ok what if I transplant the control module from the transmission I allready have im sure it works I just blew out the reverse on that trans all the other gears work the controll module reads to my truck so if I get a transmission and transplant the controll module it should mate electrically right

It should. Again, the main issue is whether the connectors all match. Both on the trans and on the chassis. As long as the trans physically fits and all of the connectors fit, the reprogramming that may be required is the easy part.
