    I've been cruisin' the FAQ, Jeep Tech, and Ludel's 'bible', but all I can find on the (rare) T98 that shipped with a few V6's is that first gear is 4.02:1. Nothing on 2nd, 3rd. 4th, reverse. (I'm not even finding that info for the Ford T98 with the 6.3 1st).

    Anybody have this info??

    Thanks much,
    Van

    Mmm. I don't think the V6 came with a T98. Close ratio T18, maybe. I thought that only the F4s were delivered with T98s, and they were wide ratio.

    Novak lists the ratios for the T18 models. I think the T98 ratios are the same as the wide ratio T18.

    I show the T-98 gear ratios are as follows:
    1st=6.40
    2nd=3.09
    3rd=1.69
    4th=1.00

    This is from info published by AA in their engine and transmission conversion instruction manual, booklet JP008 circa April 1995 :)
    This source does not show a 4.03 T98, but does show a 4.03 T18.
