What axle do I have?

I have an 05 f350 srw. I called the dealer and gave them my vin and they said they couldnt tell me what axle I had, I thought the vin told everthing on that truck. I looked on the rear end and I could make out a F81A WW but dont know if thats what they would need or not.

on the drivers side, there is a sticker with tire info on it. On the bottom, you will see something about a axle code, that is what ford needs.

I was wanting to get 430s for it because i have 38s on it now. Would that be a good gear for it? I dont pull anything much mostly just riding around.

4.10's would probably work fine and you can get ford parts..they are pricey but they work well.
