Welcome to the forum. I cannot be sure but, I would guess you have 355's. Originally there was a tag on the differential that told. You can get close by spinning the wheel and counting the revolutions the drive shaft makes. Good luck!

If you look under the hood on the underside of the hood close to the front you may still have your tag from the factory that will have the gear ratio listed, also you can crawl under the truck and see if your tag is still on the rear end. Good luck

Welcome to the Forum. This should help
I found this online, I'd just double check:

Protection Group (tow hooks and skid plates)
Fog Lights
3.92 Axle Ratio
Limited Slip Rear Axle
H.D. Engine Cooling
4x4 Off-Road Decals
Keyless Remote Control Entry System
(5) LT275/70R17C Goodyear Wrangler AT/S All Terrain OWL Tires
Unique 17 x 8.0 Cast Aluminum Wheels.
Neither the sport appearance package nor the 20-inch wheel/tire combo are available with the Off Road Group.

*This was a separate truck package option.
