03 should have the 545RFE, but it is possible it could be the 45RFE (only difference is programming). If you have the 45 you can swap TCM's to get the extra OD gear. Use a quality synthetic (4.7's are known to suffer from sludge problems) oil and let the oil get warm so it burns off any moisture/condensation. Do not let it overheat, as the valve seats in the heads tend to like to come out and play with the pistons. Check to make sure your axle isn't trying to throw a C clip (same as your 04).
