gearing question

I was wondering is there an easy way to figure out what the gearing of the drive axle is? I have the D35 setup. I was hoping to be able to avoid the jacking the vehicle up and using a string while turning the wheel method. The jeep is stock other than a 2" spacer lift. Would one of the many metal tags on the TJ tell me? Thanks for any info! Also what were the factory gear ratios for TJs with the D35 and D44. Mine is a 2000. Thanks again!

There are two metal tags. One hangs loose and states to use Limited Slip Lube Only. The other one has a bunch of numbers that do not strike me as a marker as to what the gear ratio is. Do I need to decode that tag somehow to find out what the gear ratio is? That tag is not the casting number on the casing.
