What front end do I have??

I am in the process of rebuilding my truck and I need to install new front wheel bearings now. I have a 90 ranger 4.0 liter supercab with an 8.8 and 3.73 gears. I think I have the Dana 28 but cant remember as its been a few years since my last rebuild. Can anybody help me confirm so I can get the proper rotors and bvearings on the first trip to the parts store. Thank You for time spent helping. I await your replies as I am gettin ready to go to the Autozone to get some stuff. I am gonna make some coffe and will check back shortly.

Looks like easiest thing is the bolt pattern on the front of the diff. 28 has 12 bolts, 35 has 10.

do all the wheel bearings and might as well do the axle u-joints. its gonna run you just under $500 for all the bearings and seals, u-joints, balljoints.

I know i just had to buy it all LOL.. if you have any questions taking things apart let me know lol..

yup

Well I have gone through this truck 2 times previously so the U joints,and ball joints are all staying as they were replaced with greaseable units.The bearings however I never chance as I had one blow out with 9k miles on it,so I replace them quite frequently now. Maybe it was that jump that bent my shock bolts?? So I think I will be Ok on the rebuild. I am pretty sure I remember how to do it all. Thanks for the help. Today I degreased the engine bay and repainted engine compartment,and installed a new wiring harness that has a relay for my new 100 watt lights. Tuesday I am gonna tear down the front end and install new rotors / bearings/ grease all of the u joints and change the front diff fluid.
