    You can't usually just say I have stock gears. My 85 came stock with 3.73 gears. Some came with 3.42 gears, others with 3.08's and 2.73's. You have to check it out.

    Check your glovebox. If it says, "Rear axle, standard ratio" you have 2.73s.

    Yep, what Tim said. My trucks R&P ratio was printed in the glovebox on the options sticker since my gears were the option.
