If you look all the way back on the passenger's side of the engine bay, there is the PCM, you can tell by the three large sets of wires going into a metal box with a black plastic cover. On the metal part, there might be a sticker on it that says "Authorized software update," with a date on it. If you have that sticker, you have the death flash.
or on your radiator support there will be a similar sticker, i assume that you know about our leaky plenums? the death flash was a reprogram that took out a few degrees of timing so that the truck wouldnt ping when the plenum was shot instead of fixing the plenum.....if you have it you have about 3 options
1- do the cps mod (search for it)
2- get a tuner
3- find a stock pcm without it
