Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

Got started today and was doing good till I realized the sycro hub has needle bearings in it. Got that done and mainshaft re-assembled, the new fork pads installed, the new selector shaft installed along with the shifter rail. Now it's time to clean up the covers to get ready to re-install.

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

I started cleaning today, it's got a good crust from leaking the past 10yrs. I'm soaking it tonight and will finish tomorrow while still waiting on some seals.

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

I just finished my install tonight. Got it backed out of the garage and test drove it and went through the gears. I still need to work on adjusting the Boostwerks shifter linkage but I believe I am going to like this modification.

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

Did you do both the 2 low and the chain? My day was 1 step forward 2 back, plus most of the parts were the wrong ones. I was hoping to get it done this weekend !

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

I got the seal in the tail cone and studded the rear cover last night. I'm waiting for my replacement studs for the front half case as we speak!

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

I stud everything that I can, there's way to many benefits. I did receive my order and got the front case done and will start tomorrow after the Loctite's cured!

I did the 2 Low and installed all new bearings and seals along with a new stock chain.

This thing rocks, drove around about 1 hour today and only needed to go to 4 low once to get over a hill. Think it will really come in handy since most of the time I run 2 Hi on most trails if its dry out. I shifts from 4 Low to 2 Low and unlocks the front locker in a second after shifting for those tight turns.

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

I just returned from a 1000 mile trip, with approx 450 miles being off-road and I was in 4WD very little. Installing a Tera 2Low when I rebuilt my t-case a few years ago was a good decision.

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

RCP Phx,

Looking good! Is that another stroker build for the second jeep or pictures from the previous build? Have any specs on all the studs? All from ARP? Keep up the good work and tech!

If it's available it's from ARP, the rest are grade 10.9 stainless.

Re: Tera 2 Low kit with a wide chain

I want to say that I've been using "application" specific sealers lately, along with clean dry parts and letting it sit for a couple days to cure. In this case and my trans I used this.....
