I just purchased a 2010 F-350 SD and can't find a way to decifer the vin. If Numbersdummy sees this I'd be greatful for the secret hadshake so I know what I bought.

Vin is: 1FTWW3BR8AEA04730

The decoder here claims it's an invalad vin. Thanks for your help.

That truck should be a 155" wheelbase, which is a Supercab long bed.

I'll make it easier for you. Your truck either has a Dana 44HD or a Dana 50. They are very easy to tell apart once you know what to look for.

This is a Dana 44 HD. Note how the hub body is much narrower than the opening the wheel sits on. The hub tapers out so the wheel fits:

This is a Dana 50. Note how the wheel opening is just slightly larger than the hub itself.
