    Rear axle from a 99 F-350. Here is the door tag as the tags on the axle are long gone. No code. What does that mean?[​IMG]

    You'll probably have to pull the cover and check the gears, or jack the rear end up and spin the driveshaft to see how many times it turns for one revolution of the tires. Some guys say you can tell which gears by what rpm you're running at a certain speed. What motor does your truck have?

    Maybe it shipped without a rear axle as incomplete.

    It's an axle in a for sale ad on Craigslist

    In that case, definitely pop the cover to check condition.
