You'll find the ratio embossed into a steel tag bolted between two of the differential cover bolts at the 9 o'clock position.

If your rear axle is a Dana 44 as identified by its stop-sign (non-oval) shape and that it has a threaded steel bolt plugging its lube fill hole, it has a 3.73. All non-Rubicon Dana 44 axles on the TJ come with 3.73.

If it's a Dana 35c as evidenced by its oval shaped differential cover and plastic snap-in lube fill cover, it either has 3.07 or 3.73 gearing. :)
