I looked for a door jam sticker too. It is not there. I didn't take it off. Under the fuel door there is a tire size/pressure sticker. thats it.

Maybe it's the ultra rare 4.56 ratio from the factory?

How old is your gear oil? Just change the fluid and while you have the cover off count the teeth on the ring gear and divide that buy the number of teeth on the pinion gear. 4Lo.com :: Ring and Pinion Ratio Calculator

L/S. Is that Limited Slip? Better than Open but not as good as a Locker? Am I close? This is new to me.

Theres no way to tell if its a limited slip or not, you can see anything before the 10. I'd put my money on it being open though.
