im assuming you have an 03? because thats the only year you had both...

you can usually tell by the engine compartment and looking at the intake...

if it has a chip it will be plugged directly into your PCM.. pull the PCM and see i their is something in their plugged in...

as far as the lift.. most of the manufacturers stamp the company logo on some of the parts... also check the leaf springs for a name....

Look for stickers on the lift or post pics of it and I bet we can figure it out....

If it was chipped then you need to look at the computer under the dash on the drivers side and see if there is a wire coming out of it.

Here is the link on how to install so you can get a better idea of what to look for
