I put my tag back on, only for if somewhere down the line someone wants to restore my jeep.

Lift up one rear tire, so that the other one is locked. Rotate the lifted tire, and divide by two before starting your calculations. If you try and do it with both tires in the air, the differential will likely move a little bit and you will get an inaccurate number of rotations. Or if you have an accurate speedometer, you can use this link to figure the rest out. Just leave the boxes empty for what you are looking for. It has most of the calculations in simple equation form to figure the rest out. Test in 4th gear, which is one to one and the easiest calculation.

Unless, someone changed the gears and put the tag back on the axle.

Mine was owned by some dude in a jeep club in colorado. so im hoping it has 4.10 gears. I found a tag on the right side as well that said "use limit slip diff fluid"

Trav, my TJ has 3.73's.

Ditto. easiest way to get a rough estimate.

Lbailey21 if its stock its gonna be 3.73 probably. its not gonna be 4.10 or 4.11 bc its not a rubicon
12-01-2011 06:12 PM
jeepwayoflife yea. Just look at your back differential. (the big round part on the axles, between the back tires) Then its on the left of the Diff. Sometimes hard to see because they get all black, so bring a flashlight. The front and back will be the same gearing. If they weren't, the 4WD wouldn't work. Probably 3.73, but could be 4.10 also.

TJspeed i have a 00 4.0 sport 5 speed. it may be stock. but idk... lol
12-01-2011 05:14 PM
ou812 There should be an aluminum tag on the diff cover bolts that will say 3:73
4:11
3:07
Whatever ur tag says is what the stock set up is,unless someone regeared it before.
But post your year,model,engine and transmission and it will most likely tell us what ratios were avalible
