2 LOW (YES I did a SEARCH 1st)

I have looked at the post's on the subject.
But who HAS what set-up, and what are the pro's & con's ?
Gary's from Petroworks 2wd low ?
RRO modified shift fork ?
lilzeus 2wd low mod ?
I sent an e-mail to lilzeus for more info.
Petroworks has theirs layed out.
RRO I have NO information, and have heard nothihng.
I would like to know who is running 2 low, wich one, and the things you like and dislike ? I prefer not to do the ball removal method. I want to be able to tell what gear I am in and were it is going next. I did a 2 low in my FJ40 when I did the V8 conv. and loved it. I would like to have it in my sami's. Thanks for your input.

Re: 2 LOW (YES I did a SEARCH 1st)

I'm running the PetroWorks setup. Had it in for three years now with no problems. I have never delt with lilzeus and RRO still uses pony express for shipping; they'r really slooooooow! As far as how I like it. Here in the southwestern deserts there are times when you need lo but not 4WD esp. with a locker. Thats when you can rub it in on the J**pers. The standare cry is, " Aw come on guys, can't you find a trail where I need 4WD." It also comes in handy for moving my trailer around the property.

Re: 2 LOW (YES I did a SEARCH 1st)

How is the sifting and the shift pattern ?
Is the shifting positive ?
Is the pattern the same every time ?
Thanks for the input.

Re: 2 LOW (YES I did a SEARCH 1st)

I am using Petrowork's modified shifting fork and the shifting pattern is, well, “funky”. There is a bit of fishing involved in getting it into the speed and configuration that you want. I am not saying that it is unworkable, but it does take some getting used too. Function is very good and I can't say I have any complaints.

I did the DYI just pull the middle detent ball from the shifters and your off and running it takes a little getting used to the new pattern but onc you know it. its not a problem I can generally do it on the fly. I see no cons

I have the petroworks hunt and find gearing and it is a bit of getting use to But it works, I'm hoping someone will start marketing the twin sticks for the transfer case (hint)

Re: 2 LOW (YES I did a SEARCH 1st)

I Don't know why everyone complains about the shift pattern. With the PetroWorks setup it's an H pattern. Granted it does take some getting used to, but I've had no problems with it. If anyone needs the insert card with the shift pattern on it, I can scan mine and send it to them.

Re: 2 LOW (YES I did a SEARCH 1st)

Gary,
I have the Petroworks. Once you're used to it it's okay. It can be a little fishy at times, but it is better than just leaving the ball out. I've called RRO twice and been told their in stock on a Thursday when I knew I was going to SLC on business. The next Monday when I called to stop by and pick it up it was "yea we have them on the shelf, but they are all pre sold". So I haven't driven out there. Oh yea, I've taken my core shift forks with me through the airport each time. That's a thrill. [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Now I'm going to see if I can do the twin stick or revers engineer something a little more solid. My son is a senior at UW in mechanical engineering and he's on an engineering team building a race car with full machine shop access

Re: 2 LOW (YES I did a SEARCH 1st)

I did the ball removal only one. I'm very happy! I wish it was lots quicker to get into 4x4 mode when the 2wd low shift pattern is in effect. Either way, that ball has to be removed (.)
I have had a fluke with my setup though. Sometimes, magicaly, when I am in 4wd low, it'll pop out and go into the 2wd low setup?! I then have to get out of the 2wd low pattern and get back into 4x4 mode. No idea, It's happened like 3 times in 20+ trail rides and lots of miles. I just changed to synthetic (calmini gears are broken in) gear oil, maybe that will help?
I can hit the 2wd low shift point every time, no problems.
