Ive been looking into the tech specs and parts diagrams and it honestly looks pretty much the same as the NP231 which is what I have now. The big difference is there is a mechanism similar to a limited slip which is open for 4H Full time, and closed for 4H Part time. Whats cool is first and second gen Hummers came with the NP242 so its available in a 32 spline model with a 4:1 low range. There are even models that came stock attached to an AX15 transmission, like I have. I even have a buddy who could do a hack 'n tap SYE for one
I'm not sure why we don't see it used more often at least on paper the thing looks pretty awesome. I am officially looking for one.
