1990 Wagoneer at the junkers

Found a 1990 Wagoneer at the junkyard today. Didn't have enough time to check out the car but DID snap a pic of the VIN. I understand there are two different rear axles on this model and I'm having trouble finding out any info on the VIN. Anyone know how/if I can look up axle type based on VIN?

I don't think so, typically you have to check the tag on the axle, or look for the numbers stamped into the axle tube if the tag is gone. Best bet is to familiarize yourself with what the two different axles look like and just go back to see what's under there. The tag on the housing won't just say what axle it is either, you'll have to look up the number (bill of materials) to figure out what model it is.

FWIW, the Waggys seem to be good candidates for the upgraded rear axles.
