Default Help with Sears Lobo truck

I'm trying to find out what the frequency is of this truck so I can get the proper transmitter. It's the red version and inside the battery cover, there's a sticker that says 49J. Am I correct in guessing that's the frequency? 49MHz? I've seen two types of frequency listed for 49MHz. 49.860MHz and 49. Does anyone have any info about these trucks and did they come with the TURBO option on the transmitter? My first r/c in the late 80s was a Sears Lobo truck in the blue color and I'd really like to find another blue one but picked up this red one a few years ago without a remote. I do remember the transmitter was the kind with the wheel that you'd turn with your left hand. I tried a 49MHZ Radio Shack Offroad Tiger transmitter and got the truck to move and jerk and just went crazy...but all functions work, so I'm surprised at that. Any help would be appreciated.

Better late than never, lol... 49.860MHZ is the frequency and yes, the wheel type transmitter has the turbo function. I have the red lobo just like yours...
