Transfer case saver, snap ring eliminator?

Anyone seen this:

http://www.gillysproducts.com/gillys.html?

I saw it on page 110 of 4-Wheel & Off-Road's February 2003's issue. Tempting if it's cheap enough. I emailed them about a price for one for my NP231HD.

Re: Transfer case saver, snap ring eliminator?

Dunno - sounds sketchy to me. I have had several of these apart, and the only time I've seen a broken one is when the person before me didn't know what they were doing (didn't know that ring was in there) and broke it taking off the tailshaft housing. Also, there is very little (if any - depends on which design) room for the "snap ring pieces" to get back into the rest of the case, and even if they do, they are made of steel, and there is a magnet at the bottom of the case to catch them before they cause any damage. My opinion: save your $.

Just my 2 cents - I just have never seen one of those rings "just break".

Yeah, I can't say I've heard of anything like that either. I guess I'll just keep it like it is and when/if it dies, I'll do the slip yoke eliminater kit and longer rear driveshaft.

yup I saw that too / the only thing is it,s the same lock collar that you would use on most pillow blocks that use the two piece collar / there only about 5 bucks but standard sizes only / the one there selling mite be special I dont know / it just seems pricey to me / you could take a standard one and hog it out or shim it down to fit [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
