morphious yeah i just got a 231 agian and i'll probably just keep the little thing now i just need to fix the other one and i'll have a spare just in case i ever break the other one

TheTJRod Try and find a NV241OR as it already had 4:1 gearing and has no slip yoke. May need to pick up a new input shaft though.

yardfab I have to give credit to the little 231. Mine is still trucking after all my jeep has been through. Granted now the T-Case and the Trans are my weak link since the axle change, but with a SYE and a good CV drive shaft, you cant go wrong for now. D300 are cool, but for the money go for the np231 like RednekYJ said. Heck later, get a atlas or do a doubler if you want to be custom. It's all in fun..

Thats a good idea but then you are openin up a whole nother project that will cost more money....This guy was just looking to swap in a t-case.

My advice to the OP is find a np-231 and bolt it up. It will hold just fine. If you want to to a dana 300 swap pick one up and start working on it now. Get everything you will need so when you do go to put it in your not runnin all over looking for parts. Make sure you get a 23 spline np231. There is a 21 spline that goes into the 4 bangers.

morphious ok so defiantly not going to do the 600 dollar one that's for sure. but i don't know if i it would be worth the time or not to try and flip the 300. i really want to but money may be my down fall again and the fact this is my dd right now.
12-17-2009 12:44 AM
YjMopower Yea i read that one , orange it was pretty amazing big price difference from 600 to 20 bucks.

That is a clocking ring. That would work if you had a passenger side differential. IF YOU DONT THAT WILL NOT WORK!!! You cannot flip a transfer case over and expect it to work!

Custom skid plate? According to your link there's no modification needed.
Morphious, you are obviously set on the 300, and I don't blame you, if I could afford it I would already have it. If its what you want just do it. I would look at Novak Adapters for the flip kit also.
The skid plate is not needed but would help. I don't blame him either. just pointing out the obvious. custom is almost always better than stock. And I agree on the Novak part. That is where I got the 21spline input for my d300.

and to big orange. Yes there really is not much difference. If you have a d35 in the rear that is your weak link not the tcase.

the stock front drive shaft will bolt right up for the rear you can get a xj front drive shaft and yoke of 20$ from a junk yard and have that shortened and you can use the stock skid plate with no mods. there cheap tuff cases and i like mine. the one thing i dont know is whats involved in flipping one and if the cost to flip one would be worth it for your application

12-16-2009 05:06 PM
RednekYJ Yes. The driveshaft would be just as costly as if you did a SYE to a 231. The front DS should work although I'm not sure on the u-joint size. and like I said notching the tub so you could shift.

12-16-2009 04:14 PM
big orange yj He probably wants it for the strength, size, cost, not to mention twin sticks. Or atleast that's the reason I want one. Plus its a lot cheaper for the 4:1 kit than a 231. If I'm not mistaken yjwes don't you have a 300.
12-16-2009 04:07 PM
RednekYJ dana 300 is 2.62-1, gear driven, and cast iron case, way better than the 231. I'm not sure about the 231 ratio. lemme look real quick.


np231 is 2.72-1. The difference is really not that much to make a person notice

A clocking ring is for "leveling the T-case. A dana 300 will bolt up but the case will hang down toward the passenger side. A clocking ring is like a wheel spacer that will let you turn the T-case up or down. You can not just turn a case upside down. lube will not go to the right places.

This is a flip kit

RednekYJ Unless you got a passenger side pumpkin in the front you will need a flip kit. Do you have a 4cyl or 6? The shift linkage will need to be custom unless you want to notch a bigger hole.
