The gear ratio for your GL should be on the sticker on the back of your diff. It might be dirty but it should be there.

Your ratio is 3.700. The ratio for the Isuzu is 4.56. The closest thing you will find would be a 3.90 or 4.11 ratio in a Nissan 710. You will have to run wheel spacers on the rear. You will have to change out the auto for a manual.
