1973 CJ5 304 STOCK, EVERYTHING FAR AS TRANSMISSION AND TRANSFER CASE IS STOCK AS WELL.
Does anyone know what gear ratio it would be on a '73 CJ5 w/ a v8?
 
3.73 standard
4.27 optional
 
I am with Dave on this
a 73 Jeep is 39 years old, and the way 4x4 guys mess with axles, I would do the check to see.
They may be stock, but 39 years of other owners, who knows:dunno:
 
It would be stock gears because my grandfather previously owned it and never change anything on it. Thanks for the info.
 
Snapper,
Look on the diff plate bolts, if they are original there could be a tag hanging from one of the bolts telling you the ratio, or the teth count which you can get the ratio from.
 
I have 3:73 gears in my '74 with a 360.
