Okay guys I have a question....

I have an Auto 'S' 4x4.... What is my gear ratio?

And what would the gear ratio be for a Auto 'SE' 4x4 ??

This page might help.... I cannot make heads or tails over it.

If they have different gear ratios im going to go ahead and make plans to get the SE gears.... I know its not that big of a difference (if i do have the 2.937gears and the SE has the 3.133 gears) but any little bit will help me right now.

You have the 3.133 gears and the 4x2 has the 2.937 gears.

Never understood why Nissan could never use universal gear ratios. You know, like 3.73 not 3.692.

Since they are building their own diffs any way that will make their own gear sets and they will use the gear ratio that will give them the best possible MPG for that configuration.

There are a lot of companies out there that run odd sized gears. Some Jeeps and full sized pickups are about the only ones that don't.
