jdhallissey Yea some rubber hose and hose clamp works wonders. That is a pretty good deal on what he is going to do for ya. Not that hard to pull this stuff out of a wrangler either.

ABSOLUTnie 32rh is the 3speed- no OD.

So I found a guy that will clean my valve body (trans fluid turned into a milkshake), find me a new case and swap out the internals from my broken t-case for $500. I think I'll go with him. He's really good and worked on my Jeep before. The only thing is, I have to pull the trans and the t-case and bring it to him.

Side question, is there any way I could extend a vent from my trans (32rh)? It seems like it sucks up water very easily.
10-13-2009 12:43 PM
jdhallissey umm the transmission you have would be nice to tell them too. Is yours with the 3 spd or the od trans is my only question. I don't know much about 32rh that you have. I think they will (trans case) bolt into any jeep. I think tho so don't quote me on that.
10-13-2009 11:13 AM
ABSOLUTnie When calling around for a transfer case, do I need to specify what trans I have? Should all NP231s just bolt right up to my trans or do I need to worry about some sort of adapters?

snwchris In the story above he mentioned having a vibration and when pulled over saw a u-joint cap missing. Instead of pulling the driveshaft off, kept driving the the u-joint finally gave.

This doesn't happen alot, it's one of those misfortunate things.

Just remember after a day of wheeling check everything over before hitting the road and especially wash off the brakes, inside/outside of wheels and front suspension before hitting the road to drive home. Dry, heavy mud can reek havoc and give vibrations on the way home.

Jeepzcb09 you can get a T-case with SYE out of Quadratec for $899 Brand new!!! BTW what do you think happened to make your drive shafts do that... cause im doing some trails/mud this weekend and dont want that crap happening to me!!!!
10-12-2009 08:58 PM
snwchris well if you have mix-matched parts ie: DS, T-Case out put then probably different U-joints. Otherwise it takes 2 of the same Spicer or Precision U-joints. I just rebuild mine this past spring. I got the parts really cheap from a driveshaft shop.

10-12-2009 08:13 PM
nicolas-eric Why is it bad to find the parts?
That are standard Dana Spicer u-joints and cv-joints. And the part in the circle on my pic is available in every shop that builts jeep axles (p.e. Tom Wood).
Rebuilding a DS doesn´t take much time. We replaced all joints on a friends ZJ front DS and we only needed an hour for that.
10-12-2009 07:41 PM
jdhallissey ^ well your just lucky lol. Trying to find the parts for that joint are bad enough. Want to ship me one?
10-12-2009 07:32 PM
nicolas-eric my DS on the pic cost 120$ for the parts only. a buddy works in a cardan shaft shop.

I don´t see a reason why I should install a HD front DS. If it brakes, I have 3 stock DSs in my garage.
10-12-2009 07:26 PM
jdhallissey I am doing that to my front. The problem is I can not see the yoke side on the driveshaft. If that is done for then a new shaft is in order. That whole cardan joint I just basically bought was 72 dollars and if you need the H piece connecting them is it another 65 dollars. I have part numbers too if you need them.

From tom woods the front driveshaft is only 350 I think. My rear cost me 299 today from him.
10-12-2009 07:23 PM
nicolas-eric It looks to me like only the part (red circle) that holds the 2 u-joints and the CV joint is broken. Replacing that is way cheaper than a new DS.

10-12-2009 07:16 PM
jdhallissey problem is I think he destroyed his front shaft so he is probably going to need a new one. While he is at it he should just get new front and rear shafts when he goes sye.
10-12-2009 07:09 PM
nicolas-eric With a SYE you can keep your front DS (my still works with 5-5.5" of lift and a 3.5" belly-up skid). You only need a CV rear DS.

Tom Wood offers a good package of a SYE and CV DS.

You could replace the broken u-joint on your front DS. Or you could buy a better HD front DS.

I hope that only your fron TC case is broken and not something inside the TS.
10-12-2009 07:02 PM
motokeen That sucks. I hope you get it all back together soon.
10-12-2009 06:53 PM
jdhallissey Hey I left you a pm call me up and I can tell ya what ya need since I am doing most of what your doing too. I don't mind helpin if you need another wrencher.
10-12-2009 06:51 PM
ABSOLUTnie I started taking everything off today and it was a pain. There was clay/mud everywhere.

I'm definitely gonna do the SYE upgrade but don't know too much about it. Does the kit come with the front and rear driveshafts?

Also, which u-joints do you guys recommend?
10-12-2009 03:43 PM
jdhallissey ^ your correct that looks like a pick up tube of some sort. You might be in the game for a lot of new stuff.
10-12-2009 03:39 PM
Barrie Correct me if I'm wrong, and I hope I am. In the second picture down is their some damage to the trans case above the trans pan? Looks like a torn rubber boot of some kind.
10-12-2009 03:37 PM
jdhallissey Were are our socal guys start working for those 44 rears NOW!
10-12-2009 03:30 PM
SPDNJOE somebody mentioned that either the Oceanside pick a part or the escondido pick a part had like 4 or 5 TJs.
Worth a call in my opnion.
good luck !
10-12-2009 01:49 PM
jdhallissey ^ haha agreed!

nicolas-eric His GF drove his Jeep the first time off the road. She was "a bit" too fast. That was a 5" hgh and 20" wide jump...
10-12-2009 01:26 PM

You did not crap your pants when it happened but i crapped mine when i looked at the pictures.
10-12-2009 01:20 PM
jdhallissey Nicolas your buddy did it a little different tho . What did he do to snap the leaf?
10-12-2009 01:11 PM
nicolas-eric I would clean it with some oven-cleaner foam.

A friend did the same some weeks ago...
10-12-2009 01:06 PM
snwchris Here ya go, 231w/ SYE & Tera Low Kit $700

NP231 w/teralow kit and SYE -
10-12-2009 11:18 AM
CMEvans79 I dont know about your fixable issues, but If you have a powerwasher or know someone who has one with a med setting and some time. I have one, but I live down by STL and not gonna make the trip to wash off your jeep... sorry.
10-12-2009 06:41 AM
snwchris Look thru in the classifieds, there's always 231's in there forsale and some with the SYE already on. Your best bet & cheapeast would be finding a 231 w/SYE otherwise the if you want to invest the money find the 241 rubi t-case and upgrade to that.
