Default How to tell if you have 47RH or 47RE tranny?

Can anyone tell me how you can tell the difference between the 47RH and 47RE trannies? I have a 96 2500, I thought it was the 47RH, but my Haynes manual says the 96 came with the 47RE.

Any help is appreciated.

Don't know how to tell the difference, but I do know the '96 has the RE.

I do believe that 94-95 have the RH. But I may be wrong.

I found one post that said the RH has 4 wires coming off the front drivers side and the RE has 10. I looked under mine and on the front drives side I have 3 and on the front toward the top I have a connection with 9. Don't know what to think. In the same post it said the RH was put in the first half on 96 and the RE the last half. Mine was made in April, so I'm assuming it has the RH. But you know what happens when you assume something.

Bob, Open your hood and look up. There should be a data plate on the underside of your hood towards the front. On it you will see a series of 3 letter codes. Find the line that says Transmission, the code for the 47RE is DGP .

Bob,

Your truck has the RE. '96 was the first year to have it. The '95 was the last year to have the RH.

According to the info that Trukinbear gave me it is the RE.

Thanks for all the info.
