For a 78, it has either a TH400/NP203 or a SM465/NP205. Engine is either a 400 (auto only) or a 350. I'm not aware of a 4x4 w/454 until after the '80 model year.

Front axle is a Dana 60. Rear is a 14-bolt full-floater.

Judging by that ad however, it has been modified, so it could have almost anything for drivetrain.

The ad says 4-speed, which means it has the sm465.

i'd buy it. if it does have a 60, and a 14 bolt, with an np205, plus its already lifted with 39.5s, sounds like a good deal to me.
