Is the 3.55 or the 3.73 more common? I'm think I have the 3.73 but I'm not entirely sure.
Thanks

3.07 - used with 4.0L engine / manual transmission
3.31 - only available on older (pre87?) two-door XJs with "Fuel Economy" package
3.55 - used with 4.0L engine / automatic transmission
3.73 - found in some XJs with the towing package
4.10 - used with 2.5L engine usually, and older XJs with the "Off-Highway Vehicle" package.
4.56 - rare but can be found on some older (~ 89 ~) models with 2.5L engine and auto transmission

Because its a 5 speed...the 1st and 2nd gear ratios are lower than they are in autos.

3.55's are the most common in autos. What year is your XJ? That will help narrow down what you've got.
