    anyone have any ideas what gears may be in it? I know I can jack it up and mark the wheels and pinion and turn it to figure it out but someone has to know if its 308, 355 or 373. or something else. thanks in advance

    Tags only tell you what came in stock. 2.73 or 3.08 3.27... no way of telling if its 3.55 or 3.73 or 4.10. By tag .. You can kind of figure depending on rpm and speed.. or turn your wheels

    a good way to check what gears your have, go into 3rd gear around 65mph and what rpm are you at, if its around 2700-2800rpms, you have 2.73 gears, if its around 3,000+ you have 3.08's, 3500rpms= 3.55's, 3700+rpms= 3.73's. 4,000rpms, 4.10 gears etc. ;)

    That's an interesting way. Have you tried this with any accuracy?

    Are all 3rd gears the same?

    That way wont work. What about having different sized tires?

    Way I have always used was to spin the wheel 10 times and count how many revolutions the driveshaft turns.
