Are the pcm/idm year and/or 2wd/4wd independent?

Local guy is parting out a 95 psd 2wd with a new idm and a good 5 speed pcm that I could use for my 5 speed swap. My truck is a 97 4x4 psd f250, would I have any issues using the idm and pcm for my truck?

I thought PCM's were different for each year.

Any IDM will work, i'm currently running one out of a 01 7.3.

I was going to see if i could get some parts off that truck also, but i haven't had time and don't have the money so i'm just gonna pass it up.
