CJ axle ratios

From my understanding, in 1982 jeep dropped the v8 from cjs and tried to go for more fuel efficient vehicles, and i believe that was also the first year for the five speed with the overdrive. My question is what axle ratios were available for cjs with; 6cyl 5 speed, 6cyl 4 speed, 4cyl 5 speed, and 4cyl 4 speed? I think I've seen 4 speeds with 2.73 gears and 5 speeds with 3.31's, but I would like someone to verify this so I can better understand these awesome machines. I would like to know the ratios for machines 82 and up please. thanks in advance

3.31, 3.54, and 4.10's were the most common.
