Things can get steep, so hereā€™s an idea of what 81:1 crawl ratio will look like going downhill for @lBasket. No brakes were used in this demonstration. šŸ¤£


Going downhill in 4L in 1st gear I often need to bring the RPM's up from idle. The auto trans Jeep in front of me is all up on their brakes.

How much slower can you go with your brakes before it starts to buck and die? Do you do that often or all?

I'll have to test it again on something steep in Moab but I can't recall needing much brake when idling down steep obstacles using rubicrawler. I'm not opposed to using my brakes either.

I think that'd be a big thing to have to get used to going manual -> auto but doubt it'd actually be a big deal

Even with just the 4:1 I haven't felt like I needed much braking down anything steep. I can only imagine with the rubicrawler on there too...
