XJ Stock Gear Ratios

So I have a 96 XJ with the 4 cylinder and a 5 speed. I was wondering what the ratios of this set up are. I've seen in one place that all 4 cylinders with the 5 speed are 4.11s, but can't find anything anywhere else to back that up. Preciate the help

I know for sure 2.5 4cyl. and 5sp. on a Wrangler equals 4.10s.Im guessing the Cherokee would be the same.

Theres ways to tell what gear ratio you have since not all 4cyl xjs came with 4.10s. In fact iv found 6 4cyl xjs without 4.10s

Are you talking about tjs? Because my cherokee is a 96, which is what is confusing me.

Psssssst.

There's a metal tag on each diff cover, held on by 2 adjacent bolts. What do they say?

Yes.Jack up a rear wheel turn one turn and see how many times the driveshaft turns around.Mark the driveshaft tape or whiteout to help you count the turns.4 turns=4.10s ,3 3/4 turns=3.73s,3 1/2 turns=3.55s,ect. if there is no metal tag on you diff.

Didn't see a metal tag, but there was a "4.1" or "4 1", couldn't tell which exactly, stamped into diff cover. Is that it?

With the youngest Cherokees reaching 14 years of age, many of the axle tags are long ago lost or rusted away.

Use the Google or watch some Youtube for details, as Pismo already suggested, you can estimate the gear ratio by turning the tires by hand, and counting the driveshaft revolutions. Or you can confirm the exact gear ratio by reading it off the ring gears stampings.
