Looks like the Op's truck has a light-duty (42RE/44RE) Chrysler four-speed automatic that was used in the 3.9 six cyl and some small V8's. I am also surprised to see that era of 2500 van has a curb weight of only 3,800lbs.

It is interesting that the original 4 cyl Chrysler Mini Van, built on a car/unibody platform weighed only 400lbs less then the OP's full size 2500 van. The 3,400lb, 101HP Mini Van had a 3,500 lb tow rating (when equipped).
