Axle codes

Ok, I have a '93 4x4 22R-E. My axle code on the door jamb is B03A. From what I have read this means I have an 8" pinion gear with 4.10's. Does anybody know any differently, or is this true? I have 31x10.50's and I have heard I should be running 4.56's with these. Is this the stock tire size on a 22R-E or only on a 3VZ-E?

Also, my VIN starts with 4T. I've heard that VIN's starting with JT mean it was built in Japan. Was my truck built in Japan? I didn't think they even made them in America back in '93.

The searching I've done on here and across the internet has been a wee bit inconclusive, so I'd really appreciate any info anyone has. Thanks.

Thanks dood, I think I saw that article briefly before but I had gotten different information from some other sites, but I think that one is right.

Does anybody know if I can tell if my truck was made in Japan?
