could be a 350 or a 454...

check the size of the valve covers...if you can put your hand on them and touch the bolts on either side its a sbc if you cant its either a bbc or you have small hands

bbc valve covers will fit on top of sbc valve covers....that is a dead giveaway that its a bbc from 50 feet away...

but most trucks in 88 had the 350...

if nothing else have him call the dealer and give them the vin number...i think its the 8th digit gives them the motor size

being that its a 3500 i would lean more towards the 454...its a TBI 454 but still a big block.

and it probably means 5th wheel hitch for a gooseneck trailer, as stated above
