What gears come stock in an 8.8?

What gears can I find already installed in an 8.8. I'm looking for 4.10, but have no clue if Fords come with that ratio stock in an Explorer.

Also, how can I tell from the tag on the axle/diff what gearing it has and if it's limited slip or not?

Thanks, really looking to get an 8.8 soon and just had some questions.

4.10 was an available stock Explorer ratio.

Here's what a ford axle tag looks like:

sweet, thanks a lot Wheelin98TJ. The last thing I want is to deal with re-gearing an 8.8 right when I get it, that should save a couple bucks
