Question on Rubicrawler and stopping

The 2.0/RC combo would likely be safer than the 241OR/RC (and the 231/RC) since idiots like me wouldn't have access to 10.88:1 (241OR) or 7.44:1 (231).

For sand and faster trails, the 2.0 offers a 2:1 low as a higher gearing option to the RC's 2.72:1 low. Moving the 2.0 and the RC both into low gives you 5.44:1 for crawling.

I use 2.0 on the trail 99% of the time. I only pull the planetary lever on the fo-speed (very easy, as would be the RC shifter I believe) when I get into crazy technical stuff. You know, like when I’m trying to keep up with @gasiorv 🙂.

Not really. The final ratio winds up being a very useful 5.44 -1. The 10.88-1 is twice as deep and twice as bad at breaking things very easily. Even the 7.4 -1 you get with the 231 is a great way to break stuff very easily. I've warned several not to use it in JV without big axles, they regret not paying attention to that bit of advice. The Atlas 2.0-1 is the superior choice to mate up to the Rubicrawler. Or any case that gets you close to the 2-1 ratio.

I was mainly just trying to be funny lol, but I appreciate the educated responses as I misunderstood what was originally being discussed. Thank you both.
