So, I tried playing with the t-case shafts without the levers on it and found that you are correct. The NP201 can do independent twin stick control; there is no internal interlock. To be able to run in 2WD-Low, all I have to do is bend the inside Hi-Lo lever to bypass the 2WD-N-4WD outside lever (there's no room atop the sheetmetal hump to move the outside lever outward), cut a wider slot in the trans hump for levers that can pass each other, and it will do it.
HOWEVER, if I do it, I don't want to do internal damage because I'm blowing off the linkage interlock. There is a specified gap between sticks in the FM but I don't yet understand the specific reason for it. So I'll read up on what that's about in case I need to add some adjustable stops for the linkage. Hopefully there's room for that under the hump if they are needed. I'll read up and report back.
