rear axle

Came across a rear axle with factory discs with axle code 39. Everything I can find lists this axle as 3.55 open but few say if its a D60 or a sterling. The one I did find said it would be Ford. If so, this would be perfect for the sterling in the rear of my Bronco. Anybody know for sure whether it would be a D60 or Sterling?

If its sterling the fill plug is in the housing on the side. Dana is in the cover. If you can post a pic of the tag could tell ratio

My 99 10.5 is axle code 41. Bottom line on the tag is ratio then date code.
