The extra shift lever might be to a second transmission behind the 4 speed. That's what I have: 4 speed, followed by a 3 speed. Each with its own shift lever.

He can easily check this by looking to see if there is a second transmission.

If there are two transmissions, then that truck has a lot of options with 4, 3, and two speed rear end for a total of 24 speeds forward and 6 reverse.

Edit: looking at the first photo, there doesn't appear to be a second transmission. If present it would probably be visible in that photo.
