The front axle is a Dana 30 the rear is probobly a Dana 35.. You have a New Process 249 Transfer case... The transmission is a 44RE (thats an electronic shift 4 speed automatic.. ) Also known as a Chrysler Model 500..

The 5.2 V8 Is a very good engine.. Its base is the Dodge 318. It has been around for years and its a very good motor.. I think its somewhere around
220 HP @ 4400 RPMs.. And the torrque should be 300 FT/LBS @ 3200 RPM

And lets see...................3.91" Bore and 3.31'' Stroke and 8.91:1 Compression ratio....

The standard gear Ratio is 3:73 but you might possibly have 3:55... Just look under at the rear axle .. If you have a metal tag on it read it.. The gear ratio is written on that tag.. Also if you have 2 metal tags (One saying something about "traction additive" ) you have a limited slip rear ...

Does that help???
