    Go to http://www.compnine.com/vid.php and enter your vin. it will give you the build sheet of the truck. Thats assuming it has the original transmission still.

    Should be a 700R4. Does it have overdrive? I believe in the half tons the 4l60's started in 1998? Could of been 96, dont remember now.

    Will be a 4L60E. Only auto available that year in a 1500 with the 5.7.

    The last full model year for the 700R4/4L60 (same basic trans as you probably know) was '92. The 4L60E's came along starting the '93 model year.
