    Here are a few. Look in the glove box for 3 digit codes starting with G. G80 just means its Gov-Lok locking diff, so you could have another G code also. If yours is not listed, let us know what it is, and I am sure we can get it for you.

    You wanna see a rare one? My truck has HC8 for the rear end gear ratio. Its in a full floater 14 bolt. 3.21 ratio. Wussy station wagon gears. No biggie, I use it to my advantage. I also have the Full Floater with 4.10's and a 14bolt Semi Float with 4.10's.
