I read that it was just an electronic shift case as well. Being that his Blazer is a 94 hopefully the bearings will be the same size. I think I'll offer him $100 for it. I was trying to compare different parts lists and for some reason it seems that the 233 only has the 1" chain. I will see when I tear it down!

I knew one of you was gonna say that

I need to get some extra cash flow so I can buy another Jeep. I have a couple friends that find awesome deals on cars and flip them. You just need the starting cash...

There was a TJ on CL with a new clutch but a "bad transmission" for $2700 a few days ago. I couldnt talk my GF into it (she saves her money instead of spending it on Jeep parts...)

Tell her being sensible cost you making some money
The trick of it is that the girls are smart and they know that once the Jeep gets to the house there is a low likelihood of it going away .

It would have been perfect to fix up for her. She drives most of the time so she needs a rig now. Or I could have sold it and doubled my money even with the cost of a trans.

Right on!!!! My "475hp" LJ lol is almost done and won't be really be a cruise around town jeep lol!!! Everyone should have multiple jeeps in the driveway!!!!

I agree..... You wouldn't have sold it! You need to "flip" cars you don't care about. Easier to let them go. Haha!

We are going to look at the unlimited tomorrow. Hopefully the guy coming before me doesn't swoop it up!

Randon.... Just slap the 233 in the YJ and make it electric shift!!!!

Yes, it would be hard to flip it, I would want to keep it. Good luck on the LJ! I tried talking Holly into getting one but she wont give up her Tahoe for anything less than another V8, thats my girl.

On the 233, I dont see that working too well. Bolt pattern wouldn't match up to my adapter, I would have wasted $150 on my Novak shifter. But I think the sye might work!

ok buddy.... picked up the [2] np241c transfer cases this evening. hmmm one has red fluid one has brown that i found when i set it on the ground. oh well they are both going to be torn down and rebuilt.

the np241s have 6 gear planetaries and the wider chain... research research, 'they' say you can put the 241 stuff in the 231.

supposedly i can pull the shaft and tail cone off a dodge 241 and eliminate the slip yoke feature and quite a few inches. think im still just going to get the SYE kit from JB with the GM VSS in it.

I didnt realize the front output was a flange. Are you gonna keep it or put in a yoke? They came out of 1/2 ton GM trucks right?

Idk as if right now. Guess it would depend on what setup will clear the best. The 241s shifter lever is pointed up vs the 231js which as we know point down.

Have to see exactly how that all works and see what I can do about a cable shifter for it.

I finished the falcon today. Tomorrow after it leaves ill work on getting the 1 tons under the blazer. Hopefully I can get into the LS again atleast for a minute before I leave for the holiday.

Ps the jeep sold to the guy who came at noon. He called on it before me... Oh well. Ill find another.

Sorry you missed out on the LJ buddy.

So after driving it to the lake this weekend, which was awesome, it is so nice to have extra power when cruising at 70, I think I need to deal with my steering pretty soon. My buddy was selling his YJ a while back so I swapped my stock setup for his Rugged Ridge HD. I think the rod ends were pretty worn already, but there is definitely some slop in there now. I was thinking about ordering new ends, but I want to flip it over the knuckle too so I might as well just start from scratch. Any thoughts? I have seen several kits with Gm 1 ton rod ends and I'll just buy a reamer. Most of you are TJ guys but any insight would be appreciated!
