There is a limit to the amount of torque a given torque converter can transmit and it's easily possible to reach that limit so a low ratio is desirable. More important IMO is whether the low ratio is automatically combined with the transmission diff lock when selected or whether the two functions are independent. Diff lock on full time on a hard surface is very heavy on the transmission so separate lock/low ratio is more useable.

I suspect you'd go face first through the windscreen if you managed to select low 4 on the fly.

I think I was confusing a 2wd to 4wd Manual box on the move when I posted that ... I'd always be static for a low range shift
