The torque converter locks up on its own. If you are looking at the place I think you are looking at for the info, the poster incorrectly states that the converter normally only locks up at WOT. This is simply not true. If your converter doesn't lock up during "normal" driving, something is wrong. Start off "normally", and pay close attention to the shifts. You should feel a shift from 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, 3rd to overdrive, then one more "shift". This last "shift" is the converter locking up. The TQ mod is completely useless, and can easily cause driveability issues if you forget to turn it off when slowing down. The shift mod, on the other hand, I can see a use for. You can easily do one without the other.

I have this mod (from AWShfiting) on my Trail-Only XJ. It's a great mod for the trails, but fairly pointless for street driving. The TC lockup switch will do nothing but possibly damage your tranny if you forget it's on.
I would suggest skipping the mod all together, unless you like looking at the CEL.
If you have any more specific questions, I can try to help you out. I have been running it for a few years.
You do NOT want to use a torque converter clutch to help you slow down. They aren't made for that kind of use.
In an emergency, lets say, you lose the brakes. You'll drop the auto trans in 1 in an attempt to stop. That's what it does, goes in the lowest gear it can and locks the torque converter. Not the best for anything.
