I have heard the tcase is what has the problem with the clutches wearing out.

I would avoid, actually I did avoid, gettint he tcase that keeps you in 4wheel drive all the time. The clutches will wear out evetually.


No.

All 249 all wheel drive transfer cases use chains and gears just like the rest. They just incorporate a viscous coupling unit that can wear out if exposed to extreme heat (ex. difference in tire tread depth front - rear). They dont use clutches.

Besides a 242 or 231 transfer case is a direct bolt in.

As far as off road ability, either one will do well, it is a Jeep.
Can't argue with that.

Hey Swampboy, I just wanted to say that I love the pictures. They really show the true capabilities of a Grand Cherokee. I went wheeling this weekend and thought I was in some mud and tricky situations, but it's nothing compared to what you were in. I'll have to buy myself a digital camera or something so I can post pics of my rig. In the meantime, keep up the good work with the pictures and truck, they look really good.

Can't argue with that.
Clutches maybe are not best wayto decsribe them. I think of anything that can engage or disengage as a clutch. Basically, if I understand it when you loose traction the "pads" swell with trans fluid "viscous coupling". These pads will wear out eventually. Just depens on the use.
