Planning on getting rid of those dinky 205/75r15 wheels for some 30 or 31's this summer. I want to replace the speedo gear so that it stays right, in order for that I need to know my gear ratio. I just got done looking at the tag on it and there are 2 rows of numbers. looks like this.


2111762 AB
4.11 5993-5

I think there is a point between the 4 and 11. Does this mean 4.11:1 gears? I'm hoping so. Are the other numbers of any importance or just serial numbers? Thanks.

Yes, it does mean you have 4.11 gears. I wouldn't worry about the speedo gear if you're only going to 30 or 31. It will only be a couple of miles off.

Is it a 4 banger? If so that's why it has 4.11's. Wink
