My '93 4.0L with manual trans was a 3.07 ratio. Depends on the jeeps package and options what the gear ratio is. Jack up rear pumpkin and turn the driveshaft and count tire rotations, or try to read the label on the diff. There are previous threads that talk about the procedures for each.

ok , many thanks for your answers , and if I choose a ratio of 4.88 , do you think that I can change only my ring and pinion or I must change my carrier and my posi too ?

crap i misread and was thinking 2.5l

sorry!

yeah should tell you on the differential covers, one of the bolts will have a metal tag attached, if you can spot the tag, clean it so u can read it, and it should tell you the ratio.

From the FAQ


Gearing

I4 Automatic - 3.73:1
I4 Standard - 4.10:1
I6 Automatic - 3.54:1 (normally)
I6 Standard - 3.07:1, 3.54:1 or 3.73:1 - must verify with the tag on the axle or by pulling the differential cover and reading the numbers stamped in the ring gear or by counting revolutions of wheel versus driveshaft.

If you have 3.07's then you will have to change the carrier. I think the carrier break is 3.73's. If you have 4.10's then the carrier should work.
