how to tell what gears i have

Well my jeep came stock with 3.73 gears and thats what i thought was in there, and they may still be, however im alittle thrown off, because i changed out my speedo gear because it was off about 4-5 mph, the gear i took out was a 36, the jeep had 33" tires on it and a 36 speedo gear with 33"s matches up to 4.56 gears??? Jeep also ran very well for having 33's, but speedo was off.. i went to a 31 gear and still have the 33's, speedo seems to be about dead on, but now im really curious??

Also it is possible because the guy i bought the jeep from had new yukon axles installed and a lunch box locker. So my ? is how could i find out exactly what gears it has to be sure?

If you want to be 100% sure...pull the cover off the Diff and count the teeth on the R&P.
