Amazingly enough I was able to find it.  My wife was able to dig out the 
file, and the window sticker was there.  It is a 5300 Vortec with 3.42 
(locking) rear axle and a 6200 GVW rating.  It also has "heavy duty 
trailering equip" which I assume means a transmission cooler and a nice 
receiver hitch and light plug.

Given these details, any other stuff I might want to consider adding 
before towing several loads of shop tools (table saws, shapers, etc) 
over a bunch of mountains in western Oregon and southern Idaho?
