    Can't remember for sure and need to know before I hit the boneyard on the way to work tomorrow...does anyone remember? Is it -Turn the tire or drum 2 revolutions and if you get 3 and 3/4's revs. on the yoke... then the ratio is 3.73 and 2 turns and 3 on yoke is 3.07's or what? Need to slap in a different rear by this weekend to do the pre-run for our annual HUGE 4-wheelin' bash which is next weekend. BTW anybody within a reasonable distance of N.E. Ohio is MORE than welcome...should be about 50 trucks and equal number of quads this year, plus camping,carousing,e.t.c...will post details shortly.

    If you got time take the cover off the diff and count the ring and pinion. Divide the ring by the pinion, this will give u the ratio. You can also get a good look at the teeth while your at it, to make sure gears r ok.

    Yeah, I've been talking to Mike and he probably won't be able to bring Emmett, but he might make it there, anyways.
