New 6.2! well new to me :)

Hey!
just stole my new 6.2 crew cab 2011 f250 from the dealer...
for what i paid i think i stole it haha!
so i have some questions, and no they are not MPG questions haha!
can i request a build sheet from ford, like i can from Jeep?
they had it listed as a diesel and after all the paper work etc, and getting approved i went to test drive it ( i hate driving a new truck that i may not be able to get or something .makes me feel bad i rack up miles on there truck haha)
well here i was in the seat thinking..

cool beans, sweet deal on a 6.7, a ton of options , ( found it weird that folding mirrors were an option..)
put the key in
adjust the seat and mirrors
getting all giddy
loving all the room
then i start it
and im like damn its quiet!!!
then i listen closely and im like,,,this is not a diesel.. the guy looks at me like...o ****, haha they had it titled and everything as a diesel,
so we go in, they drop the price more, and i decide hell im approved , screw it ill get the 6.2, right? awesome!

so back to the point,
i have no effing idea what my build is, gear ratios, what HP rating one i have,
all i know is its a XLT with a sweet two tone interior ( kinda looks like a king ranch just no leather or nav)
is there a way to tell? maybe a sticker on the truck? i don't feel like jacking it up and counting rotations of drive shafts and tires to figure out my ratios, and im curious to know since there are 3 hp ratings from like 411 to 360 something i read witch one do i have?

did i meantion i love the room?

Congrats on the 2011 SD 6.2L!

Also...go visit the SuperDuty forum. Here is the link to the tech folder. Using your VIN door sticker...you can decipher the codes...

Got to the below link but you will have to type in yourVIN - & you can get the window sticker online.. when you click it you will see "=#########" change that to =your VIN..

You have to pull the ESOF 4x4 switch out to engage the e-locker. It disengages itself at 25 mph.
