2006 f250 rear axle question

I have a 2006 F250 srw and I don't know if I have a 10.25 or a 10.50.
I blew my pinion last night and i'm looking at gears I don't know if 4.56 will be good with my 37 13.50x18 tires any one to chime in would be great.

Someone who knows what they're talking about will chime in, but I'm certain its 10.50. Check out 4.30 gears for your truck, you may even be able to source some from a wreckers. Most gear charts are written with lower torque gas engines in mind so diesels can run a higher gear with bigger tires

Randy's, 10.5 in your 2006, 4.56 would be good for 37s, best IMO. Though if you don't tow much 4.30s might give slightly better mpgs

I knew a guy that did that back in the 90s. Ironically, on his way back to the base with new rearend parts in hand, the front drive shaft let go and took out the oil pan!

Steering on the black top is pretty rough in 4HI, I don't know if the same rules apply if you are minus one drive shaft or not.

I haven't torn into a 10.5/Dana 60 yet, YET, but I would get an install kit, that would have all the stuff you would need.
