I drive a 04 TJ sport and was wondering what the easiest way of telling exactly what axels and gears I have in it?

tj guys will know more, but the d44 rear axle has a metal plug in it, not a black rubber plug. pull cover and count teeth on ring gear, and on pinion gear, then divide, and that's your ratio, 3.07, 4.10 or whatever

I was just wondering if there was a hidden sticker on the body somewere that listed the options because i dont really want to puul the diff covers.

There should be a metal tag on the diff.

D30 in the front , D35 if it has a plastic fill plug , D44 if it is metal fill plug - theres a tag on the diff cover that will tell you gear ratio , if that tag is not there jack up the rearend spin the tire slowly and count the revolutions of the pinion/driveshaft that will get you close-3 revs=3.07 almost 4 revs=3.73 4 revs= 4.11

Also, if you are fairly sure the Jeep is still all factory equipment, any dealer can pull a build sheet using your vin number. There is probably a simple way to do it online, but I have no link.. anyone?

I find it very funny that there is a thread RIGHT UNDERNEATH THIS ONE called "how can i tell what gears i have"
