Rear axle gear ratio

I have a quick question. What gears are we running? I failed to find the answer by doing a search.

Should be on the tag, under the paint, attached to the diff housing

Agreed, best answer is to look on the tag on the rear axle.

Our 2003 38 FDDS has a 4.63 rear axle ratio.

4th gear is 1:1
5h gear is .75:1
6th gear is .65:1

No tag that I can find on my rear axle. I read that all 2005 models have a 4.63:1 ratio. So wolfe10 if your 2003 38 FDDS has a 4.63 I'm left to believe that mine also is the same. I could not find where there was an option on gear ratios.
