    Remove your drive shaft. Put your axle on jack stands (still on the vehicle or off, doesn't matter). Turn the tire 2 full revolutions and count how many times the yoke (where the driveshaft meets the housing) turns. This will give you an approximation. Say your yoke turns just over 3 times... you have 3.08's. 3 adn 3/4... 3.73's, etc...
