If it wasn't for the fact that it's a screw up and the Jeep's computer disabled the vehicle, I'd actually almost prefer that. 4:1 is crazy low, especially if you've already got 4.10 gears.

Of that where mine I would have then build me a completely new Jeep. Once something has been swapped out, it's never quite the same as a factory installation/ build ....

Looks like quality control in Jeep plants hasn't improved much from Chrysler "standards". Mismatched body parts, now a wrong transfer case, ... Looks like somebody drinks too much beer at work.

It's a shame the guys making these things don't take as much pride in the fact that they're Made In America as we do.

Nah, they just bolt on to the transmission, real simple to unbolt and replace. No alignment or fitment issues on the tcase or driveshaft.

That's because they're made in Mexico...transfer cases that is. But I believe everything is assembled in the U.S.

Angry I might be screwed. Opinions please

MY POST COPIED FROM THAT OTHER FORUM LINK
This is a picture of my transfer case that is facing the rear

I just got a 2012 JK Rubicon Manual 6-Speed on 3-28-2012 like 3 days ago. I just took it out into the grass and woods for the first time to see how the 4WD worked. I put it in 4 HI and didn't test it all that much but it worked. It was really stiff getting it in and I was afraid I was going to bust that plastic thing off. Then I put it in 4-LOW (with the clutch down of course) and drove like less than a quarter of a mile. Realized while driving through my woods that it was 1:30 AM and I was shining my lights into my neighbors house so I decided to come back in. I was just sort of driving it like a tractor with all clutch and no break or gas. I got in some grass and it just stopped crawling. The engine kept running but it wouldn't move. I decided to restart it even though I knew it wasn't stalled. It still wouldn't work. I reved the engine and the RPM's went up but didn't go anywhere. It had rained a bit so maybe I was spinning my tires but I don't think so. I put it into 4 HI and it worked. I didn't drive it very far after that so it didn't get much of a test. Like maybe 50 feet. Then I parked it. I checked this thread and checked my transfer case. You can tell on the bottom it says 4.00 and the red lettering says RATIO. The Rock-Trac Transfer case is advertised everywhere as 4.10 so I think I might have a wrong case. What do you guys think? Do they use 4.00 on some other Jeep model?

I'm super noob to Jeeps so maybe I was doing something wrong?

Maybe it isn't the wrong transfer case in a Rubicon but the wrong stickers on a Sport.

Sorry. It sounds like the Person with the "issue" has no knowledge of anything. I'd wager no issue Other than owner ignorance

Alright I'm thinking it is the right one being a RATIO of 4.00:1 or as I have seen it 4:1 which I think threw me off. I guess I will play with it more tomorrow and see if I can figure it out.

You should look a few of them up and call them, they are CRAZY in love and take more pride in this vehicle than any of the dozens of plants I've visited.
Mistakes happen, it sounds like it was the right one after all, but these guys/gals are MORE than prideful it's built in not only America, but proud it's built in Ohio.

Ah nice, made at the New Process Gear plant. Unfortunately that one is slowly closing down.
