I have an 89 wrangler YJ. my transfer case is cracked so i took it out. 1) my model number on the case is 231AMC it has 23 spline b/c i have a 6 cly man. trans...... Can i use a 231J model with my jeep???????? or do i need a 231AMC 2) a guy is selling rebuilt transfer cases on ebay that were cracked.

DO NOT buy a welded case. Period! NP says to toss the case and get a new one. Oh, and the 231 is an aluminum case, hence the reason why welding doesn't work well.

Also, a 231AMC case is the same as a 231J. The 231 AMC designator was dropped when Chrysler first bought AMC back in late '86. Your YJ just has a left over case.

P.S. - Great success with your deployment. Thanks for your service to us and our country. Semper Fi...
