yes, Z71 is the designation for the "offroad package", inc. shocks and skid plates, etc. That is true, But make sure that someone did not just go down to a swap meet and buy Z71 stickers and just stick it on the rear quarter panels. I have seen many 2 wheel drive Silverados with the Z71 emblems on them because a lot of people think it makes there truck look " COOL ". The best to tell if it is a 2wd or 4wd is to look at the 5th letter of the VIN C=2wd K=4wd

Can ip ut a z71 Chevy transmission in a 1997 Chevy Tahoe?

Z71 is just a trim package, and some aftermarket accessories. Nothing about the drivetrain changes. The Z71 package was introduced for the fourth generation Chevrolet C/K pickups (Cheyenne, Silverado, Sierra, W/T, etc.). If it was a four speed from a 93 and up model, it's a 4L60-E, which is what your 97 Tahoe would have, and it would be compatible.
