was my engine swaped?

ok i have a kinda dumb question. i bought my truck about 3 years ago and it has a 3.0 v6 engine in it and its a 1995 xl with reg cab, 2wd and little 14 inch tires. i have yet to see another truck like mine with tiny little tires on it. and the drive belt sticker under the hood says 2.3 liter drive belt instalation. how can you tell for sure if the engine was swapped? or is my truck normal? lol

What is your VIN number? You can tell by the 8th position of the VIN.
