It looks like a Dana 70. On the upper gussets, you should find a stamp that says D70. Could also be a Dana 60 since they look similar. Axle code 39 corresponds to a Ford 10.25" but this doesn't look like that.

The metal tag on the right side of the diff cover will actually give you all the details.

I couldn't find a D70 marking on the gussets. I found the BOM on the tag 606049-1 and tube which matches up to a '98 Ford 3.55 D60. It's interesting that the door code doesn't match though.

The BOM pretty much has final say, unless it's ever been modified of course. The good news is that its a full float. I'd still try to find the axle housing stamp. It might be bottom right, and sometimes you have to scrape the paint a bit to make it show through. I only say that because Ford built a bunch of vans with Dana 70 housing and Dana 60 internals. That's how mine was built. So it was an easy carrier swap to the 10.5" Dana 70 ring and pinion.
