A Dana 44 could have a number of ratios from the factory. You could crawl under to read the tag on the diff, raise the wheels and rotate the driveshaft or take off the cover and count teeth.
Like Bagus said you can jack up the rear and spin tire and calculate tire rotation compared to drive shaft rotation. 1 tire rotation will equal xxx amount of drive shaft rotations giving you you ring and pinion ratio. Ex.... 1 tire rotation equals aprox 2 3/4 rotations of drive shaft you likely have 2.72 gears. Good luck!

just a side note, most t-5 transmissions are blown by not re-gearing the diffs when larger tires are installed. not to bash the trans but it does have it's flaws in the way of strength, so keep that in mind when going bigger and considering running w/o a re-gear.

Only in America do you have the God given right to be loudly opinionated about something that you are completly ignorant of.
