    Bluff,
    2H is 2 wheel drive high
    4H is 4 wheel drive high range,
    and I think u got it wrong, its probably 4L not 2L, that means 4 wheel drive low range.
    When ur driving on normal city terrain, tarmac etc u would drive on 2H,
    when ur going through off road terrain, sandy to soft, and moderately wet mud etc u need to be in 4H, this engages 4 wheel drive in a higher range, which means that all 4 wheels will be sent equal power at a moderate level, depending on you vehicle, torque transference and engine, 4H is usually enough for most off roading,
    4L is a low range gear, again it will engage all 4 wheels but will give them alot more power, this is good for step inclines around 30 degrees and more in very soft terrain or wet sludge and mud.
    It seems like you're relatively new to off-roading, what vehicle did u see these gears in??? For starters 4H is probably enough for you,
    a word of advice, never go off-roading alone, ideally have atleats one more person with you, keep a spade with you,
    its ideal if you can have another jeep to keep you company, tow you out of a spot etc.
    Do let us know what vehicle you're talking about and post pics if you have some.

    very well described by Faraz and congrats on the new ride Bluff
    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy S*it.... what a ride!!"

    Coffee,
    thanks alot mate

    Bluff,
    congrats on the recent purchase,
    I used to have a 1990 Pajero 3 door 2.5 diesel,
    great cars, I loved it,
    good luck with your off-roading, I can see you getting hooked,
    just remember always go nice and slow if ur vehicle is stock, joining an off-road club and getting some professional coaching is a great start,
    there are too many tips to list here, Im sure u'll pick them up from the off-road club.
