gear ratio?

WTF? when I turn the tire one full revolution my DS only makes one and three quarter turns. for 3.73 it should be at least 3 and a quarter (which is what mopar says came in it). The reason I want to find out is in the next week or so I am going to buy a 8.8 for the swap and want to find one with matching gears and I have a friend who has same setup as mine and has far less take off and feels more sluggish. The other reason I need to know is that there is orange gasket sealant on both diff covers and I do not believe factory diffs has this. So any other words of wisdom as to check the gear ratio?

you have to spin both tires at the same time in the same direction.

Happy to help. Just something I learned a long time ago, I was trying to figure out what gears I had in a Mustang, and had the same WTF moment. A wiser older mechanic gave me the heads up
