Nice to see that there is another LL-01 oil available. I will keep an eye out for it locally. Looks like your motor is a keeper.

The VIN is typically a sticker on the back of the head by the firewall. To get a good look at it would probably require pulling the motor.

That does not address the issue that the rear 245/30-20 tires are 7% too small. If you put those on the front you will have a 7% difference between the front and the 285/30-20 rears which will...

No!

1) The tires are way too small diameter-wise (7% too small at the rear)

3) Offset too high at the rear, they...

245/45-18 is the correct size for a 6er but I am not sure why the first set of wheels has 245/40-18 front tire - that is 3.75% smaller diameter than the rear. Not a good idea since a front-to-rear...
