I was looking at my rear axle to see what gears I have and there is no indication of what it is. Just says Dana, I have a 2005 TJ SE

Should be on the differential cover. Sometimes dirty and worn so it needs to be cleaned off. Other ways of checking, send your vin to Chrysler and they will send the build sheet. That's valid if you know it's stock.

Other ways, pop the differential cover, drain the oil, turn the wheels and count the teeth., mark one tooth to make it easier. Other way is to jack up one end, mark the driveshaft, mark a tire, turn the tire and count the revolutions of the driveshaft.

If it's the 2.4 and a 6-speed manual it's most likely 3.71 I believe.

If it's the 2.5 and 5-speed he does but I think 04 was the intro for the 2.4 and 6-speed the 2.4 has more hp, so the gears can be higher.

I've got 97 5 speed and came stock with 4.10
My friends drake has 06 4 banger with 6 speed and has 4:10's as well. They may have come different with automatics. But I'm 99% sure that all the 4 bangers with manuals from 97-06 had 4.10's.

My 06 SE has 3.73 gears.... Its a manual. I was under the impression that the 03 to 04 2.4l had 4.10s with the 5 speed and the 05 to 06 had 3.73s with the 6 speed....

Hey your my 1% lol
They probably did, but no two jeeps are alike so gear ratios probably differ with every 4 cylinder.

One of my friends also has an 06 SE 2.4 6-speed with 3.73 that's why knew they have them. There could have been an option for 4.10 gears just like how the Sahara TJs were before the rubicon
