Quite a bit! The Rubicon gets the best ground clearance in the business thanks to the 33-inch all-terrain tires. There is also a larger surface area than that of regular tires for improved traction and control. Meanwhile, the rock rails help protect the door sills from damaging debris, and the winch-capable steel bumpers come with removable end caps so you can push the Wrangler to the limit for better off-road adventures. The advanced 4:1 low-gear ratio delivers an 84:1 crawl ratio when equipped with the manual transmission.
