Axle ratio and vin number

A there a way of identifying the axle ratio through the vin? I'm looking at buying a jeep but it is about six hours away. The used dealer is clueless

You can get the VIN and contact Jeep and they can get you a build sheet. Every time I did it it took 1-2 days.

The VIN will not tell you the axle ratio.

But it will get you the build sheet with the axle ratio listed on it.
