1991 Wrangler YJ NP231 transfer case

Can anyone recommend who is the best major rebuilder that knows about all the updates and does high quality work and stands by their work for my 1991 Jeep YJ NP231 transfer case? Thanks

So you want to ship your transfer case to someone to be rebuilt?

Any local mechanic shop can do it. Its a pretty simple device, not like rebuilding a transmission.

The average joe can do it with a socket set and a good set of snap ring pliers

Agreed!

If you're at least moderately mechanically inclined you could likely do it yourself. There's a detailed FSM for a 231 over on Pirate somewhere, I downloaded and printed it years ago.

Randonexplosion and timatoe. Yes I agree with both of you. I would love to do this myself. I do have the experience and tools but no where to do this. It's going to be real hard to R&R the transfer case where I'm at, but I'm going to see If I can get away with it? All my tools (6 top and bottoms tool boxes, jacks, air compressor, etc.) are at my sister house 20 miles away. I'm not allowed to do mechanical work at my location.
I'm trying to recall the name of the transmission/transfer case rebuilder that was way above it's competition. Thanks

Another option is check for used ones for sale in your area. Saw a guy local to me the other day on facebook marketplace with two 231's for $200.

You can remove it invisibly (there are no signs that it's missing from your vehicle while its parked) and do it on your kitchen counter. It's small and very easy to disassemble.

Or do it my way...

Right in front of them. Once it is in pieces, they are more inclined to let you put it back together to clean up the mess lol
