If you still have not reached a conclusion for the axle detail and the cover is still removed, post the crown gear stamp numbers. They will indicate ratio( tooth count) and the cr # I can translate through my work on Dana listings. It will narrow the application chart and in general, show wheel end options for any Dana axle in use. I work for Gear Centre, we are Dana/Spicer Distributors.

I've already re-installed the diff cover so I can't look for numbers inside. However, I did get the numbers on the two metal tags and on the actual cover. They are 52099433AG, 3.55 6969 and 75W140SYN on the two tags. On the cover is Dana, 47415, 057 3, Rev F. I hope this helps, thanks.
