|jdhallissey||Check jeepforum too. Guys are selling there old when they go to the 3/4 speed t-cases|
|03-19-2010 08:16 PM|
Ill probably just end up getting one from the link I posted on post #4. Can anybody confirm for me that thats what I need. Sorry, Im not too familiar with parts for my jeep even though I've had it for six years. haha
jdhallissey- Yeah just let me know what your friend says. I wont even be able to order anything until monday so well just play it by ear.
Also, is there a difference in what I would need since mine is an automatic. I think I read there is a difference between what you would need depending on if its manual or automatic.
|03-19-2010 08:16 PM|
That is what I was thinking too. I forgot about the light- mine doesn't work lol I like it that way.
Juggernaut - I texted my buddy and I will see what he wants for his.

|Jerry Bransford||A YJ 231 may fit if it's for the 4.0L and for the same transmission but personally, I would not even consider one from a YJ. The TJ's transfer case was improved in several areas, enough so that I would stick with one out of a TJ.|
|03-19-2010 08:06 PM|
|ccain||I'm sure it'll probably bolt up BUT... And here's the but. I'm pretty sure the 4x indicator switch on the YJ uses vacuum where as the TJ is electronic. I know the 231 has like 2 electrical connectors where as the YJ transfer doesn't.|

|jdhallissey||i remember somebody doing it- hmm -- I also have a buddy in AZ that has the 4 to 1 kit that he wants to sell. So you would be getting a kick ass t-case with a nice crawl ratio that will work too. Let me call him.|
|03-19-2010 08:04 PM|
|Juggernaut||Yeah man, If you could check that out at the junk yard for me I would be extremely grateful as long as the YJ t-case just bolts up.|
|03-19-2010 08:03 PM|
|jdhallissey||Cain you know if a YJ case will bolt in without issue?|
|03-19-2010 08:01 PM|
|ccain||WOW... I've only ever seen one t-case break in two. It was on a Cherokee owned by the WV Dept of Natural Resources. He was chasing a poacher and shifted into 4lo at over 60 MPH.|
|03-19-2010 07:57 PM|
|jdhallissey||You can get a new one for 900 bucks.|
|03-19-2010 07:54 PM|
|jdhallissey||I know my tcase will bolt into your jeep just fine. I was just screwing with you on the price because a buddy of mine wants me to buy his 4 to 1 tera low kit complete for that price lol. I think Jerry knows if the YJ t-case bolts up, if it does I can run to the junkyard tm morning, there is a YJ there I am pretty sure the t-case is still there. I would only make ya pay what is cost to buy at the junk yard and then however we get it too you. Shipping it or me driving.|
|03-19-2010 07:50 PM|
|Juggernaut||Are you sure what you have is what I need?|
|03-19-2010 07:47 PM|
|jdhallissey||If one out of a YJ will fit I know of a few of them in the junk yard up here. I could go look tm for ya.|
|03-19-2010 07:45 PM|
|jdhallissey||I will give you mine for 700 bucks I would drive it to you for 50 bucks hehe|
|03-19-2010 07:34 PM|
couldnt find anything ebay or craigs list. Is this what I want?
|03-19-2010 07:12 PM|
|03 RUBI||Search the web for "Jeep parts recyclers" or "used Jeep parts". We have a good one here in California called J&W Auto Wreckers and they only do Jeeps. I'm sure you can find one closer to IL. though.|
|03-19-2010 07:11 PM|
I'd first check the various Jeep forum For Sale areas, then Craigs List, then eBay. Just make sure it's for a '97 or newer 4.0L to get the right spline count, and for an automatic as the 231 has a slightly different input shaft length dimension when it is set up for an automatic.
The 231 used in a Jeep is often known as a 231J (for Jeep). Good luck, that's too bad your t-case broke like that which is not common at all. My 231 transfer case had a tough life over 183,000 miles & it held up well that entire time without problem.
And a big welcome to WF, good luck with it!

First post... wish it was under better circumstances
Hey, I have an 04 wrangler sport straight 6 automatic. Driving on the interstate today it decided to break in half so Im in need of a replacement. Does anybody know a good place online to order a replacement?
