If it's for the two wheel drive truck there isn't too much that should matter. unless you are repairing the wheel bearings. All of those trucks had a 9" rear axle and the only thing that change in them was the wheel bearing size.

but it may not be the original rear end the truck is a collage of parts, and the back of the diff has a sealed cover that was aparently opened at one point

OK?

9"

Do you ever search for stuff? Google maybe?
Very true. I know it had a 9" at one point in it's life but he said that the cover looked like it had been taken off, and the 9" never had a removable cover on the back

From the way it sounds it is probably the OEM axle to that truck. I don't have al;l of the #'s in my book but 3L50 means 3.50 ratio the "L" means limited slip diff. The "9" means 9 inch ring gear. So my guess is it's the one from that truck.

Does the front of the diff look like this?

Then it's a 9".

Does the back of the diff look like this?

Then it's an 8.8".

According to the tag I'd say it was a 3.50 L/S. I think the opens had a space or an "O" instead of the "L". I would say the tag also says it's a 9".
