if the rear output is centered than it is most likely a dana 20 if it is offset than it is most likely a dana 18

Re: how do i identify what transfer case i have

If the tailhousing cone on the transfer is cast iron, then it's a D20. If it's aluminum then it's a D300. If it's offset to one side then it's probably a D18. If it is a NVG or NP, then it probably has the tag still on it, round and towards the front of the case.

If you have the 304 and 3 speed, then it's probably a D20 transfer, as they would have just swapped the whole works into the '86 Jeep. No jeeps came with a 3 speed in the 80's, at least from the factory.

Re: how do i identify what transfer case i have

1. Have you looked at the Transfer Case Identification Guide?
2. It may be helpful if the PO switched the drive train when installing the engine.
3. I'd also recommend More Transfer Case Stuff...
4. Please FILL OUT YOUR PROFILE. [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]
