crawl ratio

I dont get to play around in 4lo all that much and wasn't curious enough until now. I looked up my crawl ratio for my 97 tj sport and its 31:1. (4.0, 5 spd, 3.07 rear) What kind of terrain/ small obstacles can the jeep make it over without any/very little throttle? Like i said I havent offroaded it much since its my DD but I get to play in lots of snow up here in upstate NY.

It'll crawl up more stuff than you would expect. In deep snow, a low crawl ratio is no hindrance at all since more wheel speed, not less like a high crawl ratio gives, is the usual need.
When you have a choice, buy American.

I'll have to try her out on some of the nice grassy hills/ dirt roads around my house. I dont want to tackle anything to extreme because she does have quite a bit of rust underneath ( thanks NY state salt). The jeep is an absolute riot to drive in the snow, whenever the news says a good snow storm is on its way I go out for little joy rides before the plows get to work. Other drivers will be white knuckling the steering wheel and Il go by em with a big grin and the Jeep almost sideways
