3.70:1

I know that's the final drive, but what are the gear ratios themselves?

Oh and I'm kinda a n00b... what does "dual range" refer to?

dual range is the term for 4wd. There are two ranges of 4wd. There is 4-high (1:1 ratio) and 4-low which is anywhere from 6:1 for rock crawlers to like 1.5:1.
