engine serial number, somewhere on here is a serial number list for pmr vs forged, also there is an inspection plug that can be removed to check the rod cap bolts, they are different.

IIRC any built before 05/01 are forged.

My truck was built 2/01 and the build date on the motor is 11/21/00, I have PMRs. To make 100% sure you need to look through the inspection plug on the driver side of the motor, you'll need a piece of 5/16 key stock to take the plug out. The plug is to the right of the oil cooler just above the oil pan. Look through the hole and if you see bolt heads on the connecting rods you have PMRs, if you see nuts you have forged.

Of course, I go to get the engine serial number and the sticker is just white from the heat. Now I got to take the dang plug out.
