Trasfer case information needed.

Hi guys,

What can anyone tell me about the transfer case on a 94 grand cherokee that only has the 2wd, 4wd pt, and 4wd lo options
(no 4wd full time option). Im stongly considering purchasing this vehicle and would greatly appreciate any input.

BTW it is a 94 with 120,000mile, 4.0, and very clean and they are asking $5500

What do you think?

Thanks a lot.

TV

That sounds like the NP231 transfer case that is very common in the Cherokees (XJs) It is very similar to the NP242 which has the full-time option. The 231 is a little stronger but they are both aluminum case, chain driven transfer cases. Basically with part-time, the rule is never use it on dry pavement, or even just wet pavement. Only use it offroad or on-road when the road is snow/ice covered.

tod,

check the servicing on it. Check the engine and suspension components. If you like it, it sounds pretty good.

I agree with Eric it sounds like a 231 and that would make it a nice package... As long as its mechanically and electrically sound...
Make sure everything works and if you like it buy it.. Sounds like a good deal..
