What is the gear ratio and how is it determined? Whenever I see 4.1:1 or 3.08:1, that is the gear ratio, correct? What would mine be on my stock 93 YJ? Does a higher number mean more torque or something?
93 YJ/4.0L/30s (Soon to have about 7" of lift!)

A higher numerical number means more RPM . Like a ten speed bike in first gear , you will pedal your legs off . It will also allow for more torque for off road conditions . If you ever change the gears go for the highest number that will fit in the case . That way if you get even larger tires in the future your gears will already be installed .
