Plus I know you like mud, and the teralow cant be spun high because the planetaries will blow up. The welds come off on the planetary housing. I t ook my old one apart and there are a bunch of small gears in there... cant beleive it survives.
Ya, I know a guy who got the terelow kit and it was crap. I really want an atlas so I can have twin sticks.

Yeah I had one of his shafts.

Is there a way to reduce the gear in the 231? Sounds like it may be less hassle to just do that.

I recently rebuilt it and if course have an sye.

c5wagner Norcal Chris got to it first so I'll chime in on some more basic things. If you have your stock axles, then you also have to worry about the nv241or not having the vacuum switch to engage your front axle. Also, the shift arm on the 231 faces down and the 241 faces up, so the linkage would have to be fabbed up a bit.

Norcal_Chris No


The 231 input shaft sticks out 1-1/8", the 241 sticks out 1-3/8", so the seal should be fine. the front yoke on the 231 sets back 1-7/16" from the face of the tc.(where it mounts to the tranny) . the 241 sets back 2". so the front ds will be longer by 9/16". the rear 231 yoke is 16-5/16" from the face. the 241 is 15-13/16". so the rear ds will be 1/2" longer

you can tap the weep hole in the tranny for a 3/8" nc bolt and put a bead of silicone around the tc to tranny mounting surface. Or plug it another way.

You may have to to some clearancing if you are using the stock tranny mount, It will hit the 241 in a spot. Or you can space it down a touch.
Someone that I wheel with did this same swap

cheapjeep71 No it isn't. The mounting points are different.
