Cherokee Dana 30 Axle Ratio

I totalled my TJ a couple months ago, t-boned a lady that cut me off doing about 45 mph. Bent the axle along with some other crap. I have been looking for a front axle and finally found one cheap out of a 97 Cherokee, 6cyl automatic. I need to know the ratio though, I checked the tags on the axle and couldnt really figure it out. The numbers were: 52069194 and 55 610502-7. Thanks!!

4.0 w/ Auto would most likely have a 3.55 ratio, but chrysler did do some weird things throughout the years, so you may not want to rely on that.
Eat, Jeep and be Merry.

In the 97 it is about 95 percent sure of having 3:55 gears. There are claims of some with the towing package having 3:73 gears, but I have yet to see one.
