1999 tranny swap into a 1996

Can anyone help me with figuring out if a 1999 Mustang GT transmission will fit into my 1996 Mustang GT. Will the harness work? and will everything be a good fit? Please help.

Auto or manual? Will it fit, yes, absolutely. I believe there are differences related to speed sensor if we're talking manual, probably similar minor hurdles if auto. Let us know which transmission and I'm sure someone here can give you detailed info on how to proceed.

And a few Explorers too... 2008 4.0 XLT 4x2, 1996 XLT 5.0 4x2, 2003 Sport Trac XLT 4.0 4x4

The 1996-1998 uses a VSS sensor. Contact sensor uses a worm gear.

The 1999-2004 uses an OSS sensor. Non contact sensor using a reluctor wheel.

The two sensors are different and are NOT compatible/inter-changeable to each other. The sensor needs to match what the PCM is expecting as well as the wiring harness.

Expect to have problems with this swap. Especially if an automatic.

Here's some information that may help you to understand the differences between the two sensors.

You can accomplish this with a speed cal box. American muscle has a Ford Racing speed cal that is easy to work with. If it is a 99 automatic transmission, just get an internal wiring harness and a solenoid set for a 96 and swap them into the 99 transmission.
