Ring and pinion gear ration
#1
Okay -- so this may be a stupid questions, but i took my front axle differential out (because my last trail ride resulted in a broken bearing, some broken teeth, and a shitty ride home.

After pulling it out, I have 38 teeth on my ring and 9 on the pinion... I've never heard of a 4.22 gear ration for a wrangler TJ (1999 for those of you who may need to know). It's a stock Dana 35.

Just wanted to know if any of you have heard of such a thing??

If its a stock front axle its a dana 30.If its a 4cyl they were usually 4.10s 9 and 37 teeth.

35 was type-o, i meant dana 30 -- and it's a 6 cyl... but after a recount -- it's 41:9 ration -- 4.55. I'm guessing previous owner upgraded? I'm going to check my rear ratio, and buy the matching ring/pinion for the front. What a nightmare.

Guess that explains why the diff came apart if front and rear have different gears.
