I think when people say "dealer only" they mean OEM only. Who cares who you buy it from.

If he orders the same two quarts off ebay he's paying $32.24 plus time to get it there which in his case might be a day. For the rest of us that dont live right next door to AZ itll cost us signifantly more time and money to have it shipped to us which is a waste.

Expensive transfer case fluid? I wouldn't know; I have a 242.
My logic says nothing about eBay being cheaper than dealer price. It says that I can buy 3 qrts off eBay for 42 bucks which seems like no big deal and 6 or 8$ for oil again who cares. My point is these threads about how much/hard to find the 247 juice is are silly

Holy crap....did it come in a gold can? I paid 17 plus 8 delivery on the bay of E for exactly that product.....(the Arbor only...QT2 so don't need FM).

I hope you are not putting the fm in with the Arbor by the way....axles only for the fm if you have the Quadra drive....wish I did!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!

GM sells a blue color TC fluid for the 246 in their trucks that works just fine in the 247.

My dealer charges 9.99 a QT for the 247 oil. The blue GM is around 8.

Only thing special about them is the friction modifier in the fluid to prevent the clutch chatter.

I never said this fluid is hard to find. Any Chrysler/Dodge/Ram/Jeep/Fiat dealer is going to have it. I said its more cost and time effective just to buy it from the dealer instead of ebay.

If I'm not mistaken GM transfer cases are very similar to ours since they're made by the same company (Used to be New Process but I think they're under another name now) and AM General uses a very heavy duty version of the 242HD in their HUMVEE.

New Venture is the new name for new process. Venture being a joint venture between GM and mother mopar.

I think the only difference between the 246 and 247 is how the clutch pack is applied. GM uses a electric motor. Mopar uses the hydraulic pump mounted between input and output shafts.

Similar to the Vari-lock diffs. The gerotor pump system is a brilliant idea although lockup is slow compared to manual or electric lockers.

Yes when my wife backs up at Grammys house with a decent grade the rear tires usually rotate 1/2 turn before the front axil gets drug along for the ride. Just enough to scratch the stones.
