Couple questions

I am trying to figure out the build date of my truck so I can tell if I have an early 99 or a late 99 (there are differences) but that tag that is supposed to be on my drivers side door is not there? I have looked all over the truck and can't seem to find it. Any suggestions?

I did find this tag if that helps.




I am also trying to figure out what front diff I have, D50 or 60? The Dana pn on the axle is 610659 1

I know I have the ford 10.5 rear but I would like to know also if I have LS or open. The rear diff tag reads S-406 8
3.73 10.5 8619


Thanks in advance

i would say dana 50. i think the 60 came with the dually. but could be wrong. can't help with the limited slip. maybe jack up rear end and manually spin a tire and see if other goes in opposite direction. if so open diff.

Thanks I couldn't remember what way the tires turned for open. I have the same question posted over at TDG so I'll try the one you posted if I don't get anywhere.

Sean you can just go to a Ford dealer in town and have them run an option list for your vehicle and print it off. You most likely have a Dana 50 in your truck, thats what I had in mine. Oh and they can check for any outstanding recalls while you are there.

So I found a build date on the driver side valve cover and it states that I have an early 99.

You would also have a D60, the 250's had the D50 until 2002 where the 350's all came with the D60

Dont use the engine build date as your truck build date, my truck was a late 04 and the engine was a 03. And Bmac was right I was confused about the diff. Hey its been quite a while since I have owned it

Dead giveaways are a smaller track bar (17mm bolts vs 21mm bolts) and the ubolts on the front springs are more rounded across the top. The latter 99's are flat across the top.
