I've been scouring this forum and the internet at large in an attempt to figure out what transmission is in my dak. I've got a 99 5.2L Sport 4x4 w/auto trans. I've gotten different answers from multiple VIN "decoders" telling me it's a 44RE or a 46RE while my Haynes manual says the V8s all came...
someone told the OP that there is a plate with tranny ID on the right side of the tranny.
This guy has a 99 4wd with 5.2 and it turned out he does have the 44RE.

And to be "sure," I guess something else you could do is go to Rockauto.com & put in your Dak and go to the tranny section and it will show you the pans available and it will identify them as to which tranny they came from. You could print the picture of them and then compare them to your tranny pan.
On a quick edit: here is what Dakotaff says about the location of the identifier on the tranny itself: "The identification plate is attached to the right side of the transmission case. The 42RE/44RE/46RE is a 4-speed fully automatic transmission with electronic governor. The ID numbers are stamped on the case's left side just above the oil pan."
So it is either on the right side or the left side or both.
