Need help deciphering axel tags

I need help trying to deciphr the tags that I found on my Dana 30 axle. Actually one is a tag and the other is cast on the back passenger side of the differential. The cast numbers are: C36345
The tag was located on the front/passenger side of the differential. Tag reads: 550864 and on another line on the same tag: 47-11
I hope someone can help me figure out the axel ratio and/or any other pertinent information.
they are on my '73 Cj-5 with the factory 304 v8.
It has drum brakes.
I found a diagram that showed where the I.D. tags would be. I didn't have all the stated tags, but the one for the axle ratio was supposed to be the one on front of the differential.

Any help will be most appreciated!
Thank you

47-11 would be a 4.27:1 ratio (47 divided by 11). See the pic for a Dana Axle number locator

Re: Need help deciphering axel tags

Thank you for your reply. It is good to hear about ratio for sure. The Pic. however didn't work in your BBS response.

Thank You
