Dana 60 ID

Someone has asked to verify that the axle I am selling is indeed a D60, and not a 50. Here are some pics- hopefully one of you smart folks can help me crack the code.
Front of pumpkin, no visual markings in the casting


Sticker on the tube. Does say 1999, so according to an old post I found of Mr. N's that should mean it is indeed a BJ60


Rear of pumpkin- bottom mark looks like NC smooshed together. There is also a 248 stamp in the top.


Overall shot of the axle


Can anyone help me out based on the numbers on the tag above?

I know there are threads on here that ask the differences between a dana 50 and dana 60, you could search for those threads. I believe a dana 50 has a 9" ring gear and i know a dana 60 has a 9.75" ring gear, so pop the cover and measure.

It is a 60 if the tag is correct, the number (248)/60, 50/s are listed as (229)/50.

It is a Dana 60. 248 and 229 refer to the ring gear size. 248mm = 9.76" and 229mm = 9.01".
