Thought I'd start a thread about what I have found out about the 98-04 Dodge Durango/Dakota 242 D (HD) & 231 D (HD) Transfer Case to keep info in one place.
Thought it might be helpful for those trying to find a 242 HD since the Jeep 242 HD is scarce and the Dodge ones are more common and usually cheaper.
231 D is in second post.
I have included some pics too.
First it looks exactly like a Jeep 242 HD (V8).
Has aluminum tail cone, 32 spline rear output shaft, electrical connector on top and shift lever on side.
The only thing I couldn't find while looking at the JY was the input shaft length and chain size.
But while I was at a pic m pull in Oregon I found one pulled and it had a short input shaft like a Jeep 242 LD (I6).
Also found specs on the Dodge 242 D (HD).
