Welcome to the forum, Lance! And you may wish to add why you think KJV2000 would be extra beneficial.

For confused people (like me):

1. Of course, your 1611 KJV, and the almost-1611 (Cambridge)

2. Then, you have your NKJV (https://www.logos.com/product/317/the-new-king-james-version-bible )

3. Next, your 21st Century KJV (https://www.amazon.com/Holy-Bible-Century-James-Version/dp/0963051237 )

4. Finally, your KJV 2000 (https://www.amazon.com/King-James-2000-New-Testament/dp/1727136675 )

What is interesting is the rating patterns for each, on Amazon).

The Suggestion sub-forum is for books/features that Logos doesn't presently offer, but user(s) wish for.

Logos doesn't offer either the 21st or the 2000.  If one hopes for their introduction in Logos, good reasons are helpful (though not required).

it is as readable as the nkjv but holds more integrity to the wording and tenses of the kjv.

Also great for those who have been memorizing the kjv and want the same feel and flow 

i also find that there are certain changes with the nkjv that forces me back to the kjv ie; Galatians 2:20 which the KJ2000 fixs

I am just a user so I have no inside knowledge of Faithlife's process of acquiring resources from authors. BUT, I would suggest that you set your expectation rather low as to getting this in Logos.

From the product description on Amazon, it appears that the author has not been unable to find a single Bible publisher who is willing to print this translation as a single volume. This indicates to me a low demand and hard to make it profitable for Faithlife

"if anyone knows a commercial publisher who could print the entire King James 2000 in one volume, getting that contact information sent to info@kingjames2000.com would be much appreciated"

Perhaps the translator would sell you a Doc that you could render as a personal book? But that would not remedy your desire to get it on your phone.

Again, I don't want to "harsh your mellow" and I could be totally wrong, but my PERSONAL opinion is that getting this into Logos is unlikely.

Faithlife has UserVoice for => Book Suggestions (unlimited votes) that currently does not have KJ 2000 (nor Dr. Robert A. Couric)

Wed 7 Jun 2017 Blog Article => https://blog.logos.com/2017/06/youve-probably-never-seen-real-king-james-version/ includes Logos product link => New Cambridge Paragraph Bible that be used in Faithlife applications and mobile apps (predates KJ 2000 by a year)

Galatians 2:20 (NCPB) Nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. 

=> Modern English Version (MEV) is a recent "modernized" KJV Bible currently available for Faithlife use (predates KJ 2000 by ~4 years)

Galatians 2:20 (MEV) It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
