Ford differential Id information?

I looked high and low for my Ford differential and it's not listed on any Id information sites and I have turned the internet upside down and I still can not find the information!

3L27 88 5H29 decodes to:

Ford 8.8, 3.27 ratio with a "equa-lock" made August 29 of 95? or possibly 2005?, not sure on the year. Also I believe it is a 28 spline.

3L27 is a 3.27 ratio with an "equa-lock"
88 is the ring gear size 8.8
5H29 is the date code, 5 being year (95?), "H" being August, and 29 being the day.
