Re: jeepers before you buy your next 231 shorty kit

Thats a good price. Is that a cut down stock shaft or a new manufactured shaft?

Re: jeepers before you buy your next 231 shorty kit

OR...just buy an NP-208. Its a hell of a lot stronger (used in the 80-and-up J-trucks) and comes with a fixed-yoke rear out-put. Low range is 2.61:1, not much higher than the NP-231s 2.72:1 Of course...nobody that I know of makes 4:1 conversion kits for it.... But you can put some NP-288 (or was it 298?) parts into it to make it a full-time 'case with open center diff for snow 'wheeling.

Who makes this kit? Is it an AA or JB?

Re: jeepers before you buy your next 231 shorty kit

I dunno I like the NP231. If its built right its a great T case. Ive seen more D300 grenade than Ive seen NP231 fail. Ive beat the crud out of mine for the last few years as hard as anyone else I know and Ive had no probs at all. The problem is that they are expensive to build up. But a $200 well built SYE goes a little way to reduce the cost of building in the right direction.

nope its not jb or aa - its his own design he has had made- he has spent a great deal of time having the details worked out- i know because i bought an end yoke from him to see what kind of quality it was and it fit better than spicers end yoke - give him a call - he's cool to talk to - jess

Re: jeepers before you buy your next 231 shorty kit

Heres an idea....
My 98 Ram 1500 quad-cab 4x4 has an NP-231HD transfer case. Its said to be similar to TJ cases except for the wider, stronger chan, and maybe a bearing or two as well...anyone know if one of those would fit in a wrangler?? Transmissions...auto or manual?

Re: jeepers before you buy your next 231 shorty kit

I once read that the NP/NV231DHD will swap in place of a regular NP231 but I can't remember where. Someone has to know where I read that.
