How to tell what rear end I have

I have 33in tire (top to bottom) and when I turn it around 1 complete turn my Driveshaft turns (example a clock) 2 times plus 5min. What running gear am I running? Thanks in Advance, Dana

Are you turning BOTH tires or just one? If just one, you are only getting 1/2 the drive shaft turns compared to turning both tires. I'd take a guess at 4.10 gears if you double the drive shaft turns if you are only spinning one tire.

If the other rear tire is not moving while you're turning the other one, you're looking at 4.10 or 4.11. If you turn the wheel twice, the driveshaft turns = the ratio.
