Be sure your 4wd indicator light is working. The 2lo kit puts the new 5 positions in the space of the old 4, so it can be tough to tell what it's in by feel.

Also, I looked earlier today and didn't see the NP231 version of the 2lo kit on their web site. I hope for you they still offer it.

Thanks for the heads up, Don. It's not high on my priority list but if I find a source, I will report back.

I think it would be helpful if you can explain the reason for having a 2Low in your Jeep.
Is it something that really helps? And why?
What parts are needed? Any modification required to make it happen beyond parts?
The true neutral comes with it?

To me, it's mostly to improve the ability to get out of the woods (off the desert for me now...lol). I also have a Warn Hub Conversion. If something explodes badly in the front axle, which is my most likely break point, I can flip the hubs off, go to 2lo, and still creep over things to get back to the trailer.

I did mine while the t-case apart for something else anyway, so the only short term overhead for having it was the bucks, and that pain is long gone and forgotten.

There are only two reasons I would ever consider getting the 2 low: dropping a boat in the water down a ramp and compensatin on steep driveways with these 36's and 4.10 gears. I would like to keep my clutch intact and sometimes there's a little too much traction in 4wd for me. I just need precise gearing in my daily driven jeep sometimes.

I think having the locker in the rear and 700R4 with the 60:1 ratio from the torque converter on 4.10 grars while in L1 would be the same as the low kit?

I think the biggest advantage (that I've seen) is turning. With the area I typically ride in and especially in the mountains tight turns suck in 4wd or at least for me they do. I've also put my jeep back in 2 Hi for situations where I need to spin the tires to move the rear of the jeep over but I wouldn't mind the 2 Lo option for that as well.

What Louie said,

From what I've read 2LO is good for tight turns, or a situation where the front tires are either jammed or buried and you don't want to dig them deeper. Just get an Atlas and have it all. It's only money.

Thanks Don, I will keep my eye out for the 2lo option. I had that capability in the Toyotas I had in the past, it can be real handy

Do it I love my 2low, so since I added 2low to my 232 I have true neutral?

Put your t-case in neutral, transmission in 1st gear, engine off of course (standard trans). Jack up the rear wheels. If you can turn the rear drive shaft and the front one doesn't stop it, you have true neutral.
In a YJ, the only time the front drive shaft is NOT connected to the rear drive shaft, is when it is in 2high. Neutral, 4low, and 4high all connect the shafts together in the t=case with the shift mode fork that is controlled by the shift mode plate.

Maybe the Atlas will outlast the house and in that case it's a win.
