another way for you to confirm Michael;

42RE transmission pans are relatively shallow and have a
downward bulge stamped into the right side of the bottom of the oilpan,

42RH transmission pans are deeper and are flat on the bottom.

all 1995 and later 6 cyl models were equipped with 42RE so i'd say SH8FT nailed it!
