advice..New Transfer CAse a\'coming.

Well, I was going to get a slip yoke eliminator for my YJ, but then I realized, I have a NP207 transfer case, and (as far as I know) they dont make them for these.
I was thinking of spending some wad of dough ($1200) on a NP231 with a built in Slip Yoke from 4wd Hardware..
What do you guys think? and will this work?
should bolt right in right?

Re: advice..New Transfer CAse a\'coming.

$1200 sounds STEEP for any 231. You still would probably want to put a 4:1 in it, then you're WELL over what you'd spend on an Atlas. I would say either do an Atlas, or check http://www.jbconversions.com/pages/np231hd/index.html and see how their prices compare.

Nah, on second thought, just sell your old one, and get the Atlas. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Thanks Bluesman, I shot them an email.
YEah, the atlas seemed like a good choice too. and I think they are around $2100? Quite steep, but I havent heard anything bad about them...

I'd double check that price. I've been seeing them around for $1800. There was a group buy a while back at a lower price too.

Once you go Atlas, you'll never go back... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

FYI, Tom Woods lists a SYE for the 207. If you really want a 231 buy a used one and do the SYE yourself. Then you're into the t-case for more like $500 or so.

Re: advice..New Transfer CAse a\'coming.

I say go with a flipped Dana 300. You should be able to pick one up easy, the flip kit will give you the twin stick option, and you can upgrade it over time, 4 to 1 and heavy-duty 32 spline output shaft. Can you say almost an Altas with an iron case!

waiting on the 1-tons!

Ben, if you're serious about an Atlas, ask Nick Beall what he can get you one for. I remember him telling me and it was cheaper than I have ever seen them before.
