Did some research.
If you check the Drivers side door frame, there is a tag giving you your Trans Code and Axel code. My trans code is a T which is AOD. The Axel code is an H9 indicating that I have the 3.55 LS in the rear.
I have the 5.0 which is fine with me, as that just means parts are easy peasy to find. The VIN will also tell you what size motor you have.
As for the pictures, they were honestly just to show someone in the other post something they were asking. I intend to take all new pictures on Saturday. The truck in all honesty, it's not perfect, but it's DEFINITELY not the worst I've ever seen. The motor is in pretty great shape, although a little dirty though. The tranny may need some work, hopefully it's just mainly a vacuum hose issue, but I'm honestly prepared for the worst.
I plan on sinking 4 - 700 into it this month, and then an addition 3-500 each month thereafter until she's ready. I don't have a car payment or a house payment, just a $315 a month rent check lol. Good budget?
I'm looking for a good set of 33's or 35's (depending on the actual size of the lift it's got on it) for just good romping. I don't intend to do much rock crawling, mainly I just want to go out, bounce around, and have some fun. It needs to be Daily Driver quality (although I have a Kia Spectra at my disposal should I need it).
