Which Transfer Case?

alright i got a 350 in my wrangler, and i was wondering what transfer case i should use, im not real knowledgable on how exactly the gearing in them work or nething like that i know the basics but any more information on them ill take in a heartbeat.......but enough of that what i mainly do is mud bogg, and hill climb (both dirt and sand).....i was tossing up between puttin a 700r4 and th350 transmission in but im pretty sure the th350 is the route im going i dont really wanna deal with a lock up converter and i dont drive it on the highway so i dont need over drive.....but the next issue is which transfer case should i be using, i have the NP231 with the slip yoke elimantor in my jeep now, should i buy an adapter and put that tcase to the TH350 or should i get like a gm t-case like the np241 or even those built dana 300s or atlas tcase.............so tell me what you thinks best for what i use it for and fill me in on what gearing i should be looking for and what not, becuase i dont know if i need to be going 2.52 or the higher the number hte better, i kno that you want a lower first gear but does that mean i want a high number? thanks in advance

If I were thinking of making that swap, I would probably just buy the nv4500 and put the atlas II in would make a much better combo for the 350 power plant. Just my 2 cents

I'm fairly new to the Jeep world but have owned my fair share of Chevy's. With that kind of hp you should consider a gear drive t-case like the NP205 or the 300. I don't know if you're using the stock axles or not so I don't know which way would be best for you. Just remember that some t-cases will give you a passenger side drop and some will give you a driver's side drop. By the way, if you're using the stock axles and planning on wheeling it you may want to start considering which axles you want to put in it when you break these.

ya i already got some axles lined up (either dana 44s with upgraded axles and gears, or a chevy 14 bolt) id just rather brake mine first then install em, that 300 is a gear driven tcase right? thats the only thing i really knew i should for sure look into was gear driven and not chain for the added strength, hows the gearing on it for the low end, and should i be looking into doing like 4:1 or nething like that ?
