Are you telling us you know how to find the ratio or are you asking how to find this? I've heard the 4.0 auto trans have a 3.73 and the manuals have the 3.54

So can I; however, I think you ment to say you couldn't. Don't feel bad, we all have to learn sometime.

Get the axel code and then go to http://www.users.qwest.net/~ntrpriz/Axle.htm; there you will find what you seek.

For example" code D2 = a limited slip 4.10

Good luck...
