You'd know if you did need it. You would be able to go a max of about 25MPH unless you redlined it as it would be stuck in 2nd gear (limp in mode). You have the 3.0 so you have the 3 speed. It doesn't have a TCM. I've noticed that I have a fuse on my '97 Ram in the ABS slot, though I don't have ABS. The ABS relay is ,however, missing.
