Default VIN number

Yo guy's, can the VIN number tell you what tranny and rear you have? If not, where can I find that info?

Default RE: VIN number

Are you using a stick or Auto?

Stick would be a NV4500HD, Auto would be a 47RE

Axles are:

Front - Dana 60, 9.75" ring gear
Rear - Dana 70 (auto), Dana 80 with a stick

It's all there buddy, just follow the links.

I've got an auto.

Man I dunno ... you must have the Harry Potter secret decoder ring. I didn't get that info for my ram based on your link.



Thanks ...

Ask for a build sheet. It took about a week for me to get mine back.

Cheers!
