You can figure the crawl ratio for any vehicle by multiplying the lowest gear of your transmission x the axle ratio x the transfer case ratio.

Your auto trans 1st gear ratio is 2.84
Your transfer case ratio is 2.72
Your rear axle ratio is 3.73

Your crawl ratio is 28.81 (2.84 x 2.72 x 3.73)

An auto transmission has a lot of slip, so yes, even though your actual crawl ratio is 28.81, your effective crawl ratio really is lower because of the slip in the auto transmission.

JIMBOX My '08 JKU Rubi T-CASE (NV-241) OR Rock-Trac, has a crawl ratio of 73.1/1 all other jk's have 38.9/1

The Auto's are different in the Rubi with 4.10 axle ratio

When I'm in 4lo--there is "No Slippage" or give-

aelwero No clue on the ratio, but the getting away with a lower ratio is debatable, and I think it comes from the torque converter having a little "give" to it. (think stopping at a red light uphill... in an auto, on the right angle, you can let off the gas and just sit there... in a stick, "hovering" in the same manner without the brake would let the magic smoke out of your clutch.). I'm no expert, but that's the impression I get.
