Model Codes:
F250 = 7,500GVW F250
F254 = 6,900GVW F250

Interior Trim & Body Codes:
J81 = Parchment, Conventional Cab
N481 = Red, Conventional Cab

Trans Codes:
A = 4-Speed New Process (435)
G = Automatic (depends on what year and engine)

Rear Axle Codes:
37 = Dana 60 3.54:1

Where do you see BOF# ?

Thanks BB,

This really helps fill in the blanks.

In Lee's answer he put 602991-14 = BOF#.

Thanks again for all your help.
