Yes they did, the axle code is D2 for a limited slip, 42 for an open differential. There are actually 3 within an hour from me in salvage yards with 4.10 gears.

oh wait, maybe you are right.... I was probably looking for second gen rear ends when I found those... But, the parts search for the salvage yard shows it as an option even for the first gens.... but that might be wrong too.

I know they were an option but very rare.

The owners manual for 1st gens lists the 4.10's, and other odd ratios like the 3.08. There have been 2WD first gens found with the 3.08, but none with 4.10's, at least not yet.

Ford may have made a few 4WD's with 4.10 front and rear, but likely not many. My guess would be that the ones that had the 4.10 were 2WD, and so they just had the easily available 4.10's for the 8.8.

Most first gens had either 3.27 (standard) or 3.73 ("performance axle" option) gears.

i'm not sure if it's stock or not, but my truck has a 4.10 in the back. it's a 5speed sport. i find it unlikely that the guy who sold it to me would have been able to successfully swap in a rear axle without breaking something else though.

4.10 rears for first gen 2wd's I have seen in the yards, but I've had a heck of a time hunting down a front pumpkin that is stuffed with them. Maybe one day.
