Nice but should have done the 231 with the tera4:1 low kit. That would have been bad ***. But the 242 will be sick too.

Yeah, I really debated on that a lot, but I went this way instead; I priced the 231 + Tera low kit, and it was a little more than what I wanted to spend. In fact, what I wanted was some kindda doubler set-up to have more speed options..... anyways, an ATLAS some day....maybe? . Imma re-gear the diffs though, and sticking to 35s, so I should be good for what I do.

I need a spare Aussie locker 44a for cheap.

I hear ya, it is almost a grand for the 231 with the kit. The last 3 guys who helped me with CJ parts had atlas II in their riga. I was drooling a lot.

No, the one I got is in pretty good shape. I can't wait to truss it. Thanks though!

Today I took the 242HD case apart to inspect it and get the main shaft out; overall pretty simple process, just take your time and work carefully, you don't want to mess the aluminum case. I followed TW's website instructions here.


Start with this:




Remove the tail-cone, then you'll see an external snap ring right at the "speedo case" bearing (of course, no speedo on our WJs), remove it, then remove the speedo case itself.






Followed, remove the rear half case (tap it around with a dead blow hammer, again take your time, then use a flat head screwdriver on the side slots to carefully pry it appart, you'll brake the seal eventually, just takes a little bit of patience).

Now inspect things; no need to rebuild this puppy, everything looks good, and shifts well as should be expected for an 11K mi case.

The 242HD in all it's glory:




Then simply pull the main shaft out while working the chain off the front output chain sprocket at the same time; now you'll have a couple'a more snap rings to remove the intermediate sleeve and the planetary assembly off of the main shaft, and done.

Here's the main shaft and speedo housing ready to ship monday to TW to get SYE'd .

i got a weird question for ya.. last weekend, i was on a pretty difficult trail, and when under a pretty decent load (trying to get front tire up a back cut ledge higher than axle center line) i got some popping noise like my t-case was skipping... i have heard of the chains skipping when they are really worn out, but this case only has around 80k miles, and i wouldn't think it could be that worn to cause that chain to be able to skip like that.

Since you have pulled your case apart, is there anyway i might have the shifter linkage not properly adjusted, to maybe cause it to skip like it did? Like it wasn't fully engauged?? I thought for sure i would be snapping a cv joint on my front axle long before i would have any issues with my 242...

That is weird, but if it's truly a TC issue, then I would check the chain for loseness, and the shift forks for any sign of bending causing as you said, incomplete locking of the center diff. You sure it's not the front diff? (IIRC you have the QD diffs, right?, maybe one fo the clutches on the diff it's on it's way out from turning 35s? ).

Edit: You may want to check the U-joints on the front DS as well, dunno if you re-built it or not; I know you have a new rear DC DS so that one should be good.
