VIN # or data plate decoding.

Could also just search and find this http://www.yotatech.com/f120/my-gear-ratios-178636/

Incidentally that thread is on page one of the 96-95 truck tech page. There is a ton of info included on that page that should keep you busy.

4.38 is a rare ratio.

4.37 is common in 79 axles. In fact, in 79' you could only get 4.37's.. 80' was 4.10s, 81' is 3.90's, then back to 4.10s after that.

Nobody sells this particular R/P combo because it's really not worth it. For the price of a new setup 3rd member you could get 4.56's, or even 4.38's.. And for REAL cheap you can find good 4.10 setups.

Now, to swap these into your near-stock 1st gen, would be decent. Granted you could get them at a reasonable price. They're better than 4.10's and 31's, and youre pretty close to 4.56's.
