You need to get under there and look at it. It's not hard, take a flashlight and rag to wipe it off. The last 3 digits are your gearing. Seems odd that the tech said one thing and vin is different. Someone may have swapped axles in it previously.
Where exactly is it located? Will I see if I was looking at it from behind?

Crawl down underneath the rear axle and look on the center differential/"pumpkin" where the driveshaft goes in...somewhere on the back side of it will be a little metal tag and it'll have your gear ratio stamped on it.

With my current setup it bogs down shifting to 3rd like I see people changing lanes on me Anyways, I just want to clarify that when I do get the 4:10 the acceleration will be noticeable? Like I can actually keep up with traffic? I want to ask these questions before I take my jeep next week. Thanks in advance for all the input.
I have the same set up. There is a slight bog down but nothing that is so dramatic. My jeep will get 80 mph but not as fast as my wife's Ford Fusion. I consider my jeeps performance to be respectable. I have a 2.5L with 5 speed trans, 4.10 gears, and 31x10.50 mud tires.

I have stock 4.10 gears in a 4cyl 5spd, and I'm considering regearing because it's underpowered on the interstate and in deep sand. I can't see how you can even get going if you had 3.07 gears. fyi, my rpms are somewhere around 3k at 65mph in 5th gear if I remember correctly.

I am surprised nobody has said it yet, for that money it is not worth going from 4.10 to 4.56, you will not notice that much of a difference. If you are going to do it, do 4.88 and then you will be set to be able to make the move to 33" tires in the future if you so choose.

Also the guys at 4 Wheel Parts are good guys, typically to regear an axle will run you around $650-$700 an axle so with that being said and you add tax, that puts you right around $1600.

Personal suggestion, go 4.88 and leave some room to grow.

I noticed a big difference better acceleration and it doesn't lag going to 3rd. If I was going to go with 4.88 I would be driving 75mph on a highway on high rpms. The shop recommended 4.88 at first but I told them Im not getting bigger tires and so they told me 4.56 is what you need. I seriously don't think Im going to get bigger tires or even going to take this car off roading. One of the reasons why I bought this jeep is so I can take my dog to the beach and drive 2+ hours to go home. It is kinda hard to fit a labrador on a 350z. Overall I'm very happy and it is SO worth $1350 to me.

Mine had 4.10 and yes I agree it was so underpowered.

I had the same setup as you and I really thought it was slow.
