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.
