AX15 to NV3550 Swap

My AX15 blew up on me a few weeks ago and it's been sitting in the garage ever since. I toyed with the idea of swapping in an AW4 but I stumbled across a NV3550 with 40k miles on it out of a 2004 Rubicon. It's too cheap to pass up so I'm gonna buy it. However, I'm not really sure how to verify whether or not it is a NV3550 or not. Are there any tags on the transmission that state what it is? Are the clutches the same? I've heard it's a direct bolt in swap.

The guy that has it swapped in a V8. I'm pretty sure it is if it indeed did come out of a 2004 Rubicon.

Judging by the "Stock TJ Specifications" if it came from a 2004 Rubicon, it WILL have the NV3550.
It didn't seem that deep...
