Gear Ratios?

I am lifting my jeep and adding 33" tires. I know there are speedometer correction gears available, but I need to know what gear ratio my differentals are. Can you find out with your VIN #? or am I gona have to pop the cover and count the teeth? Its a 99 wrwngler w/ 4.0 6cyl and 5 speed.

There should be a tag on tha diff housing. Vin's do not have that info.

Both as a commuter vehicle in NW, NJ

If you dont have tags on your diff, use this helpful sheet:

One day, you will be just a memory for some people. Do your best to be the good one.

I have the same 99 4.0. TJ. The tag reads 3.07. Dana 35. But I can't speak for yours.

Yep look at either your front or rear axle for the above mentioned tag that the ratio will be embossed into. Depending on if you look at the front/rear, the ratio will either be 3.07/3.08 or 3.73/3.74 since the front and rear axle ratios are .01 apart from each other.
Remember that having a different opinion doesn't also require one to be a jerk when expressing it.

When you have a choice, buy American.
