Transfer Case Studs

I am replacing my NP231 with a NP242 I got from a salvage yard. I have all the studs and nuts from the one I took off, but I want to sell it (anyone want it?) and I should keep them there, but the one I got from the salvage yard only had two of the six studs in it. I can get the nuts at the hardware store, but does anyone know the size and where I can pick up the remaining 4 studs? Or should I just get the correct size bolts instead? (I figured they are studs for a reason) Thanks! - Jeremy

bolts would be a major PITA. just take one of the studs you have and match it up at the hardware store. all 6 studs are the same.

I tried that, the studs have a coarse thread on one side and a fine thread on the other. Also I cannot remember the exact size of the fine thread side, I assume the coarse thread side is the same size, just a different pitch. I cannot seem to find any like that. I have not tried the dealer, I am guessing they would charge a lot for them. Thanks! - Jeremy

Most auto parts places carry those type of studs in stock. In my area the NAPA has the best selection but the others also carry them. Those are very common on cars. I believe the nuts turns easier on the fine threads than the coarse threads in their threads. That way when you torque them down you are only turning the nut so your torque is more accurate.

Why on Earth would anybody do this? Huge step backward.

I usually get these studs from Crown Automotive. Virtually any company in the Jeep part business can get parts from Crown.

If I was using the Jeep for trails and had it lifted, I would agree, but I live in Wisconsin and during the winter I cannot be shifting in and out of 4WD every time I stop at a 4 way and the road it dry in between. I need the full time 4WD for general winter driving and this is more of a family car than a toy. - Jeremy

Actually here NAPA did not have them. It took me one hardware store and three auto stores to find. 3/8 - 16 on one end and 3/8 - 24 on the other. - Jeremy

Weird, it should be a common Dorman part. I think 675-003 should work depending on how long the shoulder length is.

RockAuto sells a pack of ten for $3.90.
