Call the dealer with the vin and if they are the stock gears they will be able to tell you what they are.

roll the vehicle in neutral. if one full turn of the tire=3.5 turns of the drive shaft then it is 3.55. 3.9 turns of the shaft is 3.92.
id bet its 3.55, thats way more common.
good luck

BS I work at a Dodge dealer. They were just blowing you off. Try another dealer. Ask for the parts dept. They will be able to give you all the info. In fact if you ask nice they can print off an entire build sheet on the vehicle.
