Also checked with Qtec and jeepaddons.com before I towed with it. SRC was on my Jeep when I bought it.
Well I suppose I am wrong there, I have a WARN and it is not rated for towing. I'd be careful anyways

Went to the local 4wheelparts today to kill some time and look around. Mostly saw a bunch of smittybuilt garbage but I did find a good deal in the ARB section. I got an EZ tire deflator for $23.99. I can't wait to try it out!

Ahhh I'm gonna have to look into this. I'm not really planning on pulling a trailer much, and at the most it'll be maybe a four wheeler one day or a small boat. I just want it for when I need it. Thanks everyone for the heads up on this, I'll be sure to check into it.

Installed Teraflex 2 LO in Transfer Case

After spending last summer with front end binding in turns from my Spartan, full time locker, I decided to make the factory 231 selectable in Low mode.

Bought the Teraflex's 2LO Kit. It's a very easy install, once you get the T-case separated into two halved.... but that can be tricky if your a first-timer inside the T-case, like me.

Directions from Teraflex start when the T-case is split apart.
I used Jeep Service Manual and several sites for pics and descriptions of opening up the t-case but none mentioned the following......
-Must remove the mechanical speedometer housing before t-case will open up.
-Must remove both front and rear drive shaft yokes from the T-case to get the two halves apart. Once your in there it is obvious why these three item need removal ....... so obvious I guess no one ever lists it as a separate step.

The mod works great. After neutral your have 4LOW and than 2LOW.
The 4X4 light still works when in 4Hi or 4LO. AND you can shift between 4L to 2L on the fly.... just like 4H and 2H.
Just thought I'd share all this for anyone with a lunchbox front end that wanted a selectable front locker.

With the Spartan locker I spent about 1/2 the cost of a front selectable ARB air locker.

You might be thinking the smaller bumper (SRC I think)

Sorry, went back and read original post with link and yes it is the smaller bumper and tire carrier.

So far no real complaints. It rattles a bit on the big bumps but went wheeling with it and did great. Still need to drop my tank to get one of the installation points bolted down ... 5 out of 6 ain't bad
It is the SRC classic so YES not the xrc but I like the smaller bumper and lower price! I have enough solid steel with my corners.

Fairly easy install takes maybe an hour. You have to drill through the tub and a steel bar mounts on the top of the step on the inside of the jeep between the side of the seat and the door entry for strength. They are very sturdy. I like them cause they're cheap and simple and not bulky like nerf bars

You can also get them in a silver aluminum color and also they have a bigger size called the super hoop that's wider
