Default 2 lo for 2wd

I was wondering if there was a mod for 2wd's to get 2 lo. I know there is for the f250s but has anyone figured it out for ours?

2 Low? Can't you just keep it in 1st or second gear?

I guess if you put in a t-case and a 4wd drive shaft in would get you there.

Remove the radiator cap and install a four wheel drive truck under it. Then you can mod the hub system to create a 2wd low position.

No.

There's nothing you can do but get a 4x4 or buy an old chevy with bull low. I have one I'll sell you......

You have the option adding underdrive. Your problem will probably be finding the necessary parts needed to add one to 2WD. The kits are fabricated for 4WD and usually used in motorsports or by the hardcore 4 wheelers.

I think most shops would be happy to help you install underdrive but the one off fabrication needed for a 2WD truck, if you can't do it yourself, will cost a lot of money.

Try this:

EDIT: If you decide to do this talk to a lot of different shops. Most will tell you they can do it but their experience is really limited to kit installations and not one off fabrications, this is the realm of very few back yard mechanics. Spend a lot of time talking to previous customers and other people the customers know. If you can't get past shop only references I'd pass on that shop.
