Differances in axles?

I have an 02 Fx4 which I measured the axle and should be the 31 spline.
Which has a code of 313A, which I did not see on the list for my year. It is a blue tag so it did not go under warranty.

Does anybody know what the differances are with the other codes?? I am just looking for spline differance and just in general whats differant
I see for my year alone

8.8" ring gear, 10" brakes, 4.10 ratio, tag S330A
8.8" ring gear, 10" brakes, 4.10 ratio, tag S330E
8.8" ring gear, 10" brakes, 4.10 ratio, tag S333S
8.8" ring gear, 10" brakes, 4.10 ratio, tag S333W
8.8" ring gear, 10" brakes, 4.10 ratio, tag S303A
8.8" ring gear, 10" brakes, 4.10 ratio, tag V3330B
8.8" ring gear, 10" brakes, 4.10 ratio, tag V311A
8.8" ring gear, 10" brakes, 4.10 ratio, tag V333M

Thank you

where did you get that list? might want to look at the 2003 list. im pretty sure you have a 31 spline like you mentioned.

you should also have a Torsen LS and 4.10s, with 10" drums.

I am pretty sure thats what I have but I noticed that the left axle tube has a bend fold in the outer tube so I need to replace the entire axle so I am just looking for a replacement. I would like to stay with 31 spline since I just rebuild the diff.
As for where I got the list

Yeah its bent not bad, I can still drive it but since it has already started to bend i know it will be easier to bend more. No pics right now im at work. I need to get it fixed right because me fiance got hit this weekend by a 19 year old drunk girl and she needs a car and since I have 3 now I am going to let her drive one and it wont be the tbird.

I have pics and a movie of after the wreck 3 cars my fiance got hit head on. I am just trying to get the movie reduced its 28mb atm so hopefully I can get that up by the weekend. Before everyone asks if she is ok, yes well somewhat. She has a broken tibia, compound facture fibia, contusions on both wrists, two dislocated thumbs, air bag burns on her face and bad brusing from the seat belt. She is getting a cat scan today to make sure everything else is ok. Our Dog which was in the passenger seat got hit with the airbag and just has brusing.
The other two cars in the wreck the 19 year old was cut up pretty bad but thats all i know then the 29 year old guy fratured his sturnum and some bad brusing.

The only donors for the 31-spline Ranger axle are the 2003+ FX4 Level II or the 2002 FX4 Off Road like yours. The early 02 Torsens were recalled on manuals only, so there are lots of suspect auto diffs out there on 2002's. Sounds like you don't need the diff anyway, though.

You better watch those dealerships. I Brought mine in a few months ago for that recall and they told me they were only covering the Wheel bearings! WTF? How do new bearings stop an axle from fracturing?! Bastards.
