You can tell a lot about a Ford from the body tag located inside the driver-side doorjamb if you have the factory service manuals. I didn't, so I had to buy a set off eBay for $120. Now I know that my truck has a C6 transmission (Trans code: K), a Ford 9-inch rear with a limited slip and 3.50 gears (Axle code: H6), and the front Dana 44 with the optional limited-slip differential (Axle suffix code: 2). Truthfully, I could've figured all of that out by making a few phone calls, but I needed an excuse to buy the manuals.
