To Atlas or not to Atlas

1st off my rig is a 2010 JKU Rubicon automatic running 42's on 60's with 5.38 gearing. Its not a DD, 90% trail only rig / 10% Joy ride.

Its going into BOR sometime in the next few weeks to get a Hemi installed, my question is should I go ahead and get an Atlas 2 or 4 spd installed at the same time?

I have heard both sides so far, one that my stock transfer case will become my new weak link and I should change it out. I have also been told that the previous comment is BS and that the rubi transfer case can handle it no big deal.


So if the general opinion is to go Atlas, then the question is 2 or 4 spd? I have never had anything other than a stock TC in any Jeep I have owned. My understanding is that going to a 2spd would be almost pointless, however I have been told that a 4 spd is a real pain in the arse, hard to get the right gear / always shifting blah blah blah..


Opinions / Help / Knowledge anything to help me make the right choice???

I love the 4 speed but I have a 6 speed. Being able to choose from 18 different low gears is nice. I don't use the super granny low very often but it is nice to have when going real slow and the power is insane to the wheels. You can idle up most obstacles as long as the tires will hold. With this transfer case off road I have never felt like I lack power and am in control. 40's 60's 5.13 gearing. I run the 3.8 range 90% of the time off road.
I can see with an auto and that extra hp to go with the 5.0 two speed and run in 1st or 2nd gear to adjust your speeds.

If you learned something new today, you had a good day.
