    If you look at the original literature for each model year , you can see what ratios and drivetrain you could order . Of course any GM high up GM employee could bend the rules with a central office production order .

    And 3.07 was available from 69-76 as well , which is a great ratio ONLY if you have dual low geared transfercases and a shorter tire :D

    http://brochures.slosh.com/ go there and look at the dealer books . I bet it would of been cool to order one from the dealer in the old days .
