Re: NP208 low range sounds
I was just curious because mine seems a bit too loud. I expected noise and a fair amount but I didn't think it'd be that loud.
I imagine the chain is a little sloppy but you can't even hear the transfer case in 4high when traveling at 45mph. The lube gets checked pretty regularly since I have a leak between the case havles behind the torque bar.
Since we're on the subject of breaking things, just how strong is a NP208? Will my transfer case or transmission fail first? I'm talking doing something like driving up to something 12" tall and trying to power over it. I know my transmission can handle it but can my transfer case?
I've never had a NP208 apart before but I've had a 231 apart and they look mighty wimpy inside. Granted, the 231 is for s-series but I imagine they're comparable.
Yeah, I'm paranoid. I don't need to be breaking my transfer case.
