RAM 1500

I had a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 club cab with the 5.2 liter engine. Does anyone know what rear end gear ratio was probably on that truck. I have the 3.73 ratio on the Z66. Last week I had to take a tree that fell in my back yard to the city dump. When I got out there, It was very muddy. I buried the Avalanche up to the axles. With the full load and being buried to the axles, the Avalanche did not hesitate for a moment. I was in a line with big garbage trucks, so I had to stop and go alot.
I just notice that the Avalanche does not down shift going up a hill as the Dodge did.
