Stupid question time

I have a 2007 wrangler x (stock)and want to know for sure what im working with,front is dana 30 right? is the rear a 35 , i want to get some differential covers and also have my gears checked to make sure the guy didnt use my 5.13's for his jeep and replace mine with 4.88s because he couldnt get any for his jeep for a month or so.this will be interesting if they do not end up being my 5.13s i gave him to install.so since im getting the covers changed out i can have them checked to ease my mind.

checking your gears

Well, with the locker I'm not exactly sure how it works..

But.. an easy way to tell what you have for gears:

1) Block your wheels so the jeep wont roll
2) jack up the back
3) you can rotate the wheel 1 full turn and count the drive shaft rotation.

make a mark with a sharpie on the driveshaft and tire, When the wheel goes 1 full rotation, whatever your driveshaft spun ( say 5.13 times around) that will be your gear ratio

-- edit --

Dont forget to put the gear in N or you'll have a hell of a time trying to rotate that tire

08 rubicon / 2dr / 6spd / 3.5" rockkrawler / 1" BL / 36" TSL's / superior rear axle shafts, JE Reel 1350 rear DS / skidrow oil/trans skid / riddler covers / EVO C gussets / RK truss / custom grill gaurd / CB / Herculiner / home brew sliders / plenty of scratches

Here's a picture of a rear Dana 44 for reference
