what gear ratio do I have?

Tried a quick search but didn't find an answer. How do I find out what gears are in my axles? Is there somewhere I can decode the VIN or something?

You can look on your door plate and get the axle code , pretty easy search from there

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt

Easy... SRW or DRW? What tire size and what RPMs at 70 MPH? If you're around 2000 RPMs on stockish tire size at 70, you have 3.73s.

It's a single rear wheel, stock tire size, 265 iirc. 70mph without OD? 2000 rpms @ 70 sounds about right.
