I took the info on the super informative gear ratio and differential sticky thread to my appointment to look at a 1998 std cab for sale (we bought it ).
I took a picture of the VIN info on the door and the A/TM line says:
? / W59
It's a standard cab 2.4L w/ a 5 speed (I guess W59 is a designation for a 5 speed transmission). Original rims: 14x5J, tires: P195/75R14. Any info on what the gear ratio might be on this? I'm guessing given the tires there are only one or two typical ratios that were sold.
Above A/TM line it says:
The VIN is 4TANL42N8WZnnnnnn
Thanks for any info you might shed.
