If it's a 7.3 and a 3/4 ton then unless someone did some real rigging. it is a full floater. A quick way to tell is to look at the axle portion that extends through the wheel. If it has a cover held on by bolts then it's a full floater. Another tell is the fact it has 8 lugs on the wheel.

92-97 all have the sterling 10.25 on f250-f350 and used the vss to communicate to the speedometer, and 85?-91 all used same axel but speedo did not go off the rear, the 88-91 is capable once the tone ring and sensor are installed iirc but best bet is any 3/4 to 1 ton ford 92-97 single rear wheel will work for you with no issues

Re: 97 rearend

Another option is swapping in an SD rear. Get the hubs machined to 8x6.5 and you will have a stronger axle with disc brakes!!!!

None to speak of, they are essentially the same thing.
