Standard ratio with a four-speed is a 3.54:1 though other ratios were available. In an AMX it could be either an Open rear end (standard), Sure-Grip (optional or standard with Go-Pack option), or Locker (optional).
Check this thread for more detailed info on how to tell what ratio you have:

The rear-end is an AMC Model 20 or Dana 20 (the AMC rear end is made by Dana). For high performance use installing one-piece forged steel axles is recommended.
