What is a Ford H9 axle code?

The sticker inside my truck door has “H9” listed in the axle column. Can you tell me what an H9 axle code means?

Thanks for reaching out! I can definitely tell you what that H9 axle code means. First, the sticker on your truck’s doorjamb offers a ton of helpful information about your vehicle. You can find your VIN and barcode, exterior paint color, trim package, wheel size, and much more listed there. And, of course, you can find information about your axle. A
H9 axle code means your truck has a limited-slip differential with a 3.55 ratio. A limited-slip differential (LSD) limits the amount of wheel spin when the driven wheels lose traction as power is applied. It does this by redistributing engine power to the wheels with the most traction. While LSDs provide the best traction around, accidents are still a possibility. Why not take this time to review your
