what other jeeps can I get a transfer case from?

I just bought another 2.5, 94 yj today. It is the same as my current yj. I am planning on putting the best stuff on my yj and then selling the one I just bought.

I need a transfer case for the new to me yj. It is wiped out. I drove it home about 8 miles, but it made a ton of racket. What other jeep can I look for a new tc. My local yards do not have any wranglers to pick from.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Here is a picture. The chrome grill one is the new one.

You'll be looking for a 21 spline version of the NP231j case. I don't know of too many that bolt right up. The Cherokee case is clocked slightly for its application.

You want the best Jeep T case get a Dana 300 from a CJ, Get a Twin stick conversion, 4:1 gear kit, 32 spline output, D300 Flip kit ......... But you will be close to the cost of a Atlas2 going that route. Also upgrade the trans to a AX15 or NV3550

I was just wondering if a junkyard route would work or is it very difficult to rebuild the tc? I will re sell this jeep once I get the stuff I want for mine. I got it for under a grand andplan on using the suspension lift, tailgate, tires, steps, and interior for my jeep. I will then put my stuff on the new one to re sell.

Rebuilding a transfer case shouldn't be too hard. I've never done it myself but I have installed about a dozen slip yoke eliminator kits and there aren't too many parts that would be difficult to install. It could just be a stretched chain. Pretty cheap fix.

I would pull it first and open it up. They are very easy to work on. Just take your time and take pictures for reference. It probably is just a chain issue and can be fixed cheap.

A 2.5l Cherokee tc should bolt up with little work. Would have to change/ flip the selector arm and probably the sending unit, but that's easy. The yokes would need to be swapped with your current tc, but again, not a big issue. The clocking that was mentioned would not be an issue as that's dependent on the transmission.

Dont forget the new passenger side axle for that swap too.

They are easy to pull apart and work on. The most specialty tool you will need is a heavy duty lock ring pliers. There are plenty of write up on rebuilding them. you tube or google it. Id start by pulling apart yours and see if it just needs new bearing, chain, or a full rebuild. Remember the problem with swapping is that you still dont know what kind of shape the one your buying is in.

According to Novaks site you can get a t/c from wranglers with the short input 21 spline shafts from behind AW4 through 90,AX4,AX5 and BA10/5.

Like said earlier I would steer clear of the cherokee ones since you will need to modify the holes in your trans to mount it in the right location.

The good news is any one doing a ax-15 swap for a BA/10 should have what you need.

Not true. It is the transmission that decides where the transfer case is clocked. There is nothing to be done to a cherokee transfer case to make it work in a wrangler. Its when you use the cherokee transmission that you need to worry about clocking.

I stand corrected.. I do apologize I actually knew this tidbit of information but had my cup of coffee kick in mid way through typing my reply which made me finish in haste.

He will not need a ps drop axle if you read my post about the flip kit.

Honestly is stopped reading the rest of the post when it started to go the Dana 300 4-1 kit. The op was asking about what t/c would be a direct swap not what can I do to make the best most expensive t-case ever.

What don't you use the T-case from your current jeep?

You would be better off fixing the TC and selling it with the lift. You should buy a new lift for your keeper with some of the profits of your sale. When you start trading out the springs, you'll figure out how much it sucks to have to do it twice. LMAO!
