Ill have pics tomm afternoon but I just put on a 1inch body lift to add to my 2.5 inches suspension lift. Going down the highway I hear a bang and my driveshaft and transfer case basically blew up. Where can I get a new transfer case and for how much? I can only find places that sells parts to it...
Atlas, and never worry about a transfer case again. Stay away from the NP241. It's not a bad transfer case, but for the price, unless someone is giving you one, the Atlas is worlds (pun intended) better then the New Process transfer cases. IMHO
The only True Professional Mechanic in the Greater Toronto Area for Modified Jeeps, and trucks. If Rock Spyder hasn't seen it before, or done it before, you don't need it.
I want cheap as possible but i want something that isn't going to **** again either...ill do some homework tonight and like i said ill post pics tomm. Are these things easy to replace or should I pay a real mechanic?
I saw someone already ask but I'll mention it again. Where did the case break? Did the centering ball on the front driveshaft seize and crack the case in two? If so this was a problem with the driveshaft rather than the t-case
If you are slightly mechanically inclined, they are a piece of cake. It's just heavy, bulky, and awkward. But easy.
Jack the transmission up slightly and get it supported,
Unbolt and remove the transfer case skid plate
Disconnect linkages/electrical connections
Drain oil from transfer case
Support transfer case with jack, unbolt transfercase from transmission and lower.
Do you guys recommend any strong somewhat cheap rear driveshafts I can get for the jeep as well? I'm gonna do the official measuring tomm but I figure if you guys basically already know the specs I could get good recommendations
Tatton and Tom Woods make driveshafts stronger than OEM, only you can determine if they're cheap enough. You didn't supply a budget. I would just replace your t-case with another NP231. They're cheap, strong, and very reliable. An atlas is great, but unless you make a **** ton of money, I wouldn't call them or the swap cheap/easy.
What kind of transfer case should I get too? Stock or something better?
There is nothing wrong with a stock one if you stay on top of your maintenance, don't drive it with the pinion angle screwed up so that it has vibes, and check it once in awhile to make sure the bolts that hold the u-joint in are good.
How many of those did you miss?
