How many axle splines?

I just purchased a 1979 F-250 Custom from my brother. It needs a new diff and ring and pinion. Is there anyway to tell how many axle splines there are without removing the axles? Its colder than hell up north right now. I want to buy the parts and work on it in the spring and dont feel like digging it out of the snow bank to work on it. Frostbite sucks! It has a Dana 60 rear end with 3.54 gears. Thanks for your help. billybob

i have a 72 with a dana 60. if you want, i can count them splines for you, but do you really wanna trust that they'd be the same? i'd sure hate for you to order up some new ones, and get to work on it only to find out i was wrong..... or if you want, i'll check my super service manual, it might have something in it on the axle splines..... but if it was me, i'd still check to be sure.....
