The \"new\" 1975 J20!

My best friend just picked up a '75 J20 for $500. It has a little rust (rear flares HAVE to go and new whee-wells be made.) It has the 258/TH400/Quadratrac combo. I was wondering what the gear ration would be for the axles and tranny. It does not run do to the ignition solenoid but some redneck inginuity is wiring up a hidden ignition bypass and fixing the steering column. Soon a cheap SOA will be performed, maybe have the springs re-arched, and the biggest tires that will squeeze into those wheel-wells will be churning up the Florida goo!
