The VX is based on same year Trooper but the RS 2 door frame. Based on that I would say it's a 4.30:1 modified. Not 100% on ratio. But that what was in my 2000 Trooper. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

ALL YEARS OF THE VX CAME WITH ONLY 4.30 IN THE U.S AND USED THE STANDARD 12 BOLT REAR AXLE, AND AN LSD DIFF , WHICH IS ODD THAT THEY DIDNT USE THE MODIFIED 12 BOLT, MAYBE IT WAS FOR THE WEIGHT SAVING , OVERALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE TWO AXLES IS I BET CLOSE TO 80 LB,S THAT 12 MODIFIED WITH AN LSD , JUST THE CENTER CHUNK IS ONE HEAVY MUTHA

Great info. I thought all 12 bolts after 98 were mods.
