It's a Dana 30. Gear ratio should be stamped on it, or on a tag on the rear (same gear ratio).

Yep it's a Dana 30, all XJs came with a Dana 30 front axle. This should give you a general guideline as to what the gear ratio could be.

Gearing

3.07 - used with 4.0L engine / manual transmission
3.31 - only available on older (pre87?) 2 door XJs with "Fuel Economy" package
3.55 - used with 4.0L engine / automatic transmission
3.73 - found in some XJs with the towing package
4.10 - used with 2.5L engine usually, and older XJs with the "Off-Highway Vehicle" package.
