Rear gear ratio

How do I tell what gears I already have installed? VIN info, or that tag on the diff? This is the tag...





Thanks
Greg

Re: Rear gear ratio

yeah, I suppose. I thought there was a way to read the tag. Only gear number on that one is 2 73.

Re: Rear gear ratio

my google-fu is strong tonight...

How to Read a Ford Truck Axle Tag | eHow.com

This says my axle was made June 10 1998, has a 7.5 inch ring gear, and is a 2.73 non locking diff. Cool info there!
