how to tell what front diff i have?

I just changed the ratio in my rear now I am trying t order the gears for my front. They need to know if it is a dana 50 or 60 and regular or reverse rotation on the 60. How can I find this out? They told me there will be a code on the ring gear but I dont want to have to take it apart then be without a truck for a couple weeks well i wait for parts. The tag on the diff cover has some codes but nothing that says what type of diff it is? anyone know what the codes translate to?

they changed from 50 to 60 in 02 so if you have a newer truck, which i assume you do it is a 60 you can also check the pinion nut size 50 = 1 1/8 and 60 = 1 5/16
