 If you have manual hubs and stock gears a neat trick is to put it in low range and keep the hubs unlocked for 2WD low, it really helps for those steep winding roads.

That won't cause any binding with the center diff locked?

The front just free spins, it's getting power but since the hubs are not engaged you're in 2WD.  Front axles are spinning but not powering the front wheels, it doesn't hurt the car.
