I saw this exact thing happen back when I worked for the Jeep garage. The Dept of Natural Resources (Game Wardens Office) in WV all ran Cherokees at the time. This one Game Warden was chasing a poacher and when the chase went off road, he tried to engage 4WD at about 65-70 mph. KA-FAWKIN-BOOM! Transfer exploded. Sent shrapnel up into the cab.

When the owners manual tells you not to shift into 4WD at speeds greater than 55, they mean it! ;)


Make sure you check the tranny over real good! Rarely this happens without causing some sort of tail-shaft damage in the trans!

i was coming back from a four wheel trip and i don't know if my 4 wheel drive wasn't properly disengaged or what.

I hear those doing that on the highway, I wonder how I can prevent it from happening to me. It looks like yours doesn't have fluid in it. 'Sorry it happened.

Tazman2 08-23-2008 04:24 PM

i did have fluid in it no its on the road:D i bought the jeep used and i thinking maby no on changed the fluid in it but i don't know

I think a little bit of "Alabama Chrome" will fix that

rrich 08-24-2008 12:17 PM

Bummer!

But I guess that's one way to convince the wife you need a SYE.

J_Yuk05 08-24-2008 12:21 PM

Being that the case is aluminum it does fatuge a little after so many years, and since the NP231 is chain driven that is another reason. It's a good idea to change fluid regularly and keep it full. The case can break some number of different reasons, but the number one issue I know of are dry cases and loose chains. I had to do a rebuild on my XJ's case like 2 years ago because the chain was starting to get a bit of slack in it.
