Question First Jeep Needs Rear End..Gear Ratio is????

Just got my first Jeep and the rear end is junk. Do I need to match the gear ratio with the front and if so how do I figure out what the rear ratio is. I can't read the tag on the axle. Jeep is a 1989 Wrangler, 6 cyl, automatic

most likely a 3.07

An easy way to check is to open it up and count the teeth on each gear and divide them. Say the ring gear(large) has 43teeth and the pinion gear(small) has 11 you would divide 43/11=3.90

yep, count the teeth. most likely 3.07
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
