crazy Jeep ideas

I sitting here daydreaming about my next Jeep build-up...I want a big block chevy with a strong manual tranny, but I don't know what transfer case. Ideally I would like one that can be 2wd, 4hi, 4 lo, and full time 4wd. Does something like this even exist? And if so can it handle the torque of a built big block?

PS-don't ask why I want a big block in a Jeep, I already know I am crazy...

Re: crazy Jeep ideas

Jeep Cherokees (XJs) come with Select-Track (Optional on Classic, standard on Limited) which denotes the NV-242 transfer-case. It has 2wd, full-time four wheel drive, part-time four wheel drive, and part-time four wheel drive low range.

Re: crazy Jeep ideas

You need to get ahold of an all chevy drivetrain.The 205 tcase is the strongest,but isnt full time.They also came with np203's which are full time but have no 2-wheel without a conversion.205's are gear to gear.203's and 208's are chain driven, and I dont think they would hold up to long with a big block..

Re: crazy Jeep ideas

Here's an interesting article about the NP203 transfer case (which is nearly as strong as the NP205 if you use the proper lube in it (10W40 motor oil)), and the article discusses the part time kit also...

Re: crazy Jeep ideas

Best case senerio for you might be to buy a wrecked Chevy or GMC pull the whole matching unit out and install it in your Jeep

Re: crazy Jeep ideas

I guess 203's are kinda strong, but my Dad hasn't has the greatest experiance with them. Burnt two out in one winter in his jimmy. His 208 has hald up far better. Maybe it was just those two different transfer cases. The 205 seems to be much stronger than both. Low range is similar, only difference is one is full-time chian and the other part-time gear. One more thing, them 203's are great big suckers, and the weigh a ton!
