Default axle

Alright so i was at the pick and pull and i saw a 99 ranger there and i wrote down the axle code because i am looking for a limited slip. The axle code was and R6. Looked it up and it is a 3:73 with LS 8.8. I am getting 33's soon. Should i just wait and try and find a 4:10?

I find it easier to look at the tag on the diff, and more accurate too. You never know if an axle has been swapped out before. The tag on the diff will read 373, or 3L73, for 3.73/1 gears and open/limited slip respectively.
