What year???

I got an offer to buy a front and rear housing's from a friend,but he does not know what year they are.He thinks they are from an 86 but is not sure.Is there a way to tell what year they are without opening them up.And if i have to take the 3rd member out what to look for.

Done a search but can't find anything related.

Mine is an 87.

I can take pics if you need them.

Re: What year???

If they are 86 or newer, and haven't been swaped they should be 3.73's

Crude test for ratios:

Lock down one axle/tire, (wire, hold it, just jack up one side, whatever)

Mark the pinion position.

Rotate the other axle 2 Two rotations.

Count the number of rotations the pinion makes. This number should come to about 3-3/4 rotations on a 3.73
If its almost four, it's a a 3.90, a bit over four, 4.11, etc...

If it has a locker, you won't be able to rotate just one axle/wheel and you only rotate the tire/axle ONCE.
