Is this kid serious? Its on your freakin' radiator support!!! You say you have never opened the hood of your truck?
Why are you always so angry? How are you so sure that he's not trying to find out information on another Ram's engine?
Anyways, One way you can tell from the outside is on the VIN number. There will be one posted somewhere that you can see from the windshield. On the 8th digit, It will be a Y, Z or 5. Y is 5.2, Z and 5 is for 5.9. Of course, there are other letters and numbers for the other kinds of engines that Rams have.
