axle gear ratios

Hey, I have a 1991 Jeep Grand Wagoneer that has 4.89 gears in the rear, trying to fine a good gear ratio for the front dana 44 to mess with everything. It has a np229 transfer case with a 2.61 low gear ratio and running 35 inch tires. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I could be wrong or I don’t understand what it is you’re but the front and rear gears should be of the same ratio unless you can’t find a ring and pinion gear for your front axle in which case you’re going to have to find one that you can match that rear with.. but I could be wrong!

Sounds like you're looking for a set of 4.88's for the front......

Unless you don't like the ratio in the rear.

As has been said, the front and rear have to match.

That '91 has a Dana 44 rear axle also, if it's the stock axle.
