Odd gear ratio

My dana 35 blew up, so I'm swapping for an 8.8. I was trying to figure what gears were in the jeep so I can match the front axle..
I count 37 teeth on the gear and 9 on the pinion, unless my math is bad I have 4.11 gears. I didn't know they put 4.11 gears in these jeeps?

Can you run 4.10 in the rear with 4.11 in the front? Or are they so close it doesn't matter?

Actually the factory sets it up that way. Its close enough to not matter. Most if not all of the manufacturers do it.

yes, 4cyl 5speed jeeps got 4.10/4.11 gears across all the models. the later tj 2.4l actually could be had with 4.56 gears.

Yep, the autos did. But the auto with the 4.2 was good for 3.07's, and I *think* the 4.0 auto had 3.53's. Don't quote me on that tho, not sure. I do know for a fact that the 5-speed 4-cyls had 4.10's tho.

I'm pretty sure I have 3.07s in my 4.0L auto. I wish I had at least 4.10's. But every person in this area selling a D35 with 4.10s think they are worth the price of gold. I've seen them as high as 350$.

The high price of D35 4.10's convinced me to simply re-gear the damn thing and be assured what it's condition is for $100 less.
