    A 3.0L? Are you sure? It's either a 2.7L 4 banger or a 3.4L 6 cylinder.

    Well it's actually for a good friend of mine and it does have 3.4. But I think We figured it out. Just wanted to see if there were any visual signs from pictures. I think we saw the Rear diff lock button. Is the button under the the drivers side ac vent? Thanks for the replies fellas. Let ya know if he buys it. Told him he needs to sign up to this forum. Thanks!!
