posi equipped?

Can you tell from the VIN # if your truck has posi or not? I realize I could jack it up and spin by hand ...No?

look at you axle code on the cerification label...97 means you have an 8.8 4.10 open diff and R7 means you have an 8.8 4.10 LS

Copy & paste the following website address into the address bar of your web browser and add the VIN at the end of the address. That will (might) get you the window sticker:

I think this only works on newer vehicles. It doesn't work on my 2004 Ranger, but it gives me the window sticker on my 2011 Fiesta.

open the drivers side door and look under "AXLE" on the tag. If you can't find the door tag just do a burnout lol
