What was the R&P ratio ??

1986 Grand Wagg D44 Front D44 Rear. Has the three speed Auto and the factory towing package?
If someone could let me know that would be great. Or if there was options, would the ratio be stamped in the housing, and where would it be stamped. Thanks a bunch!

Re: What was the R&P ratio ??

Prolly 2.73's or 3.31's should be on a metal tag with nubmers stamped in...

You can drop the diff cover and take the numbers off the ring gear....

Example:

46:13 =3.54 gears

the 46 is the ring teeth count
the 13 is the pinion teeth count

Jack up a tire, spin it all the way around twice and count how many times the driveshaft rotates. Probably 3 and 1/3 times (3.31:1 ratio). You've got to spin the tire twice due to the action of the spider gears.

Re: What was the R&P ratio ??

Thank you very much for the help. I don't know a lot about the full size Jeep right now. I am a YJ driver. But I am about to get a Wag, and nothing is as cool as learning all you can about a new Jeep. Again, thanks very much.
