Re: 2-Wheel Low
<font color=red>This issue is a pretty controversial one. I've heard both sides. However after almost 20 years of wheeling experience, I have to pipe up.</font color=red>

In my many expeditions (ford ruined the word) to the back country, I could only dream of having 2xlow. Since I put lockers in as the first mod, on any of my wheelers, they will go almost anywhere an unlocked 4x4 would (I said almost). After changing over to zuks I discovered that petroworks (and now others too) offered a 2xlow option! I have since jammed in a GRSII with the 2xlow option, and wouldn't have it any other way period!
Yes it's true, you do have to pay attention at first to your new shift pattern, or you will embarrass your self. But after several runs, it's second nature and you won't have any problems remembering. I can't believe that people actually whined about that as a drawback? However as you approach a really rocky section that's do-able in 2x, you just slam it in 2xlow and creep over it. you will use it ALL THE TIME.. I say go for it! You won't be sorry.
