Default Tell me the motor?

Can someone identify what motor is in this truck, the owners isn't sure, and neither am I. Thanks.

Does it say 2.3?

more than likely a 2.9, 2.3 is a 4 banger, the add says 6, although it could be a 3.0 or 4.0

It says 2.3 on the valve cover. I hate when people don't know what they have and then try selling it

That's an intake manifold and it says 2.9 so it's a v6.

Viewing it on the app with an iPhone, but quality looks really clear to me
