If yours is the dually then that's at least a 4.10. F250 max would have been a 3.73.

I had to look for one for an E350 and finding one at a reasonable price in good condition is not easy. Every junk yard I spoke to said they were so tuff they either were still in use, the truck was junked with a good rear and that rear is super expensive or the rear was cheap but totally gone for one reason or another. Best bet is probably to find a local yard by you with a F350 like yours in it and go and pull the rear yourself. Mine was actually broke upon delivery because the yard pulled it out and just didn't care about the condition of the axle at all. As far as interchangeability, I was told different things from different people when I was looking, so I cannot really help you there.

Would you have any idea on what it would cost to rebuild? What it's doing is when I let out of it it pops and when I get back in it it pops and I'm 6 hours from the house working

I believe your F350 should have the same dana 80 unit as my E350 I was working on. I was looking at between 800-3000 depending on what exactly was wrong for an axle shop to fix it. The shops said without at least pulling the cover off they could not give me a very accurate price. Buying a new, used third member and installing it yourself would probably be cheaper, a third member goes for around 600 used in good condition from what I saw. On a second note, are you sure its the axle not the u-joints?
