The 249 is a full time case no 4 part time so you can drive it on pavement in 4 lo. The hopping is probably from a bad viscous coupler inside the 249. It's a common failure and they wear out after 130k miles or so. The part is around 300-400 bucks. It's non repairable replace only. If you drive it like that it will ruin the front tires, tie rod ends, ball joints, ect over time. You can remove the front drive shaft and it will be fine.

Do you think I should just swap over to a 242 instead? Because mine's pretty shot. Would it be cheaper?

Failed inspection today. Torn CV boot, no bulbs in foglight, and my track bar has a lot of play. Found out that the play is there because the bolt egged out the bolt holes on the bracket. So I need to figure out how to fix that.

I'm glad I don't have inspection, sounds like a pita.

Probably the same cost after you buy the 242, get the rear drive shaft to the proper length, rebuild the 242 with new bearings, seals, and chain, and find a shifter bezel.

Tell me about it. I effing hate Maryland politics. Pretty state but the government pretty much ruined it. They are so far up your arse with everything here it's nuts.

You can take a nice thick washer and weld it to the wallowed out hole or just go to a junkyard and get a new bracket.

I think I found someone to weld it and I'm buying a grade 8 bolt today.

They really did ruin it. Laws and taxes here are ridiculous. Got to love paying a tax on the rain. Also the DNR not giving us any trails is fun too. Since they closed that quarry.

Gas tax will be going up to around 50 cents more by 2017. That money goes to public transportation. Nice to screw over the people who have to drive for the entitled parasites in the cities. Also the gun laws are going to be ridiculous come October.

And yes, it really sucks not having any place to explore off road. Only thing left do do is get a boat and hit the polluted waters of the Chesapeake.

Yeah buy your guns now while its legal. Come October you can't even bring a gun across state lines, say for instance you were moving you'd have to ditch them.
I totally forgot about that new gas tax. Glad I bought another V8
Gotta love those murky brown waters.

Check all the coolant hoses and clamps!! If they check out fine try a little stop leak in the coolant system. Buy the powder stuff it worked for my huge leak for a couple weeks (til I got a new radiator) yours doesn't seem too bad though. Maybe use a table spoon of powder.

As for the oil it could be the oil pan gasket?

Just trying to keep her goin'!!

Okay thanks man! I'll check that out when we do my transfer case. I'm throwing in a 242.
And as for the "oil" turnt out that oil puddle was from my roommate's crappy oil change and I just happened to park over it. The scariest part is it was actually under my transfer case and I was confused to as why the tc was leaking oil lol.
