Stock ratio was 3.73 and 4.27's were optional. I think i found it, is this correct.

Those ratios (3.73 and 4.27) would be correct for '72-75 CJs, but in '60 you could find gears as low as 5.38s.

I'm singin' that song again......
Drop the cover and do a tooth count. After fifty years, you never really know what is in there. It also gives you a chance to see what the carrier and r&p look like.

I have a 61 with the Dana 44 and it has 5.38. I agree with jeepdaddy though, from what I know 20 different farmers owned mine before I did and the farmers I know could pull gears out of a lawnmower and make it work. Drop the cover do the count. If you dont know what it is that probably means it needs the fluid changed anyway.

My 49 and 65 both had 5.38s. I don't think they came any other way.
