Help! - New Jeep Guy Needs Help with '92 YJ Gear Ratios

'92 YJ 4.0L manual tranny

Problem is whith 4wd engaged rear tire drag/skip. 2wd everything is ok.

Trying to determine gear ratios front and rear. Looking like they are differant.

Jacked both left tires off ground. For every full turn of rear tire, front tire turns about 1.33 or 1 1/3 turns. I assume both should turn at same rate. True or not?

Bye the way, while doing above tried turning tire one rotation and checking drive shaft rotation at same time. appears I'm doing something wrong. For each tire turn on front, drive shaft only turns about 1 1/3 turns. Sorry forgot turns the rear made.

Tag on front diff reads: 52068201 07 6103 93-2
Tag on rear diff reads: 53005 567 10 610 319

I am not sure if spaces between numbers are the same as on tag. However I do know numbers are correct. Can anyone decode them?

Am I doing somethin wrong?

PS - Since I have only owned the Jeep for a short time, have no idea if ratios have been changed. Also got a killer deal, reguardles of what the problem turns out to be. Jeep Newbie

While this may not be the easiest way, it will be the most accurate. Pull the differential cover off of each axle. This way you can actually see the gears inside of your axle housing. The ratios will be stamped on the ring gears(this will be the big round gear). And since you have not had the jeep for long, it sure wont hurt to change the diff fluid since you dont know what was done to it.
