Ok, I may have a line on an NP241 transfer case out of a Rubicon. I'm trying to decide to make an offer on that, or just get a new input gear for my NP231.

My NP231 has an AA SYE already installed w/ CV driveshaft. If I get the NP241, I won't need to swap out the input gear, as it already has the correct spline count. However, I'll have to re-think the CV-end of my driveshaft. It also has the 4:1 ratio - which is both good and bad depending on who you ask. I have 4.88 gears, and rock crawling isn't something that I normally do when wheeling. I usually just hit hills, trails, and large pits of mud.

Thoughts? Opinions?

Is one rated to hold anymore horse power than the other, since it'll be behind a small block?
What is the NP231 worth, the cost would be even (sell the NP231, buy the NP241, or buy the needed parts to convert the NP231 input...)

I think the real thing to ask yourself, is if you'll really need a 4:1 low... like you said, advantages and disadvantages...

I think in your mind you have already decided and you are looking for us to help persuade you...

Most of the time this is true.. but I am truly on the fence here.

And yeah, I was thinking that with the 4:1 thing. I have a feeling that I would rarely see 1st gear off-road if I had this thing. As far as strength goes, I've heard really good things about them (comparable to the NP231). I guess what it will boil down to is what kind of a deal it'll be. I don't know how much he will want for it yet. I'll know more on Wednesday.

The 241 can handle a little more horse power than the 231. I think the case and some of the bearings/gears were upgraded from the 231. As far as the 4:1 ratio, I think it really is a plus, wether you crawl or trail ride. If 4:1 in 1st gear is too low, you can always use 2nd or 3rd with 4 lo on the trail.

Well, the decision was made for me. He only wants to sell the transmission & wants to keep the transfer case. It's just as well I think. NP231s grow on trees. The Ruby NP241 does not.

If you're worried about strength find a 231 out of a 1500 ram or dakota v8, they have a 231 but it has the wider chain set. Same thing as getting the wide chain kit for the jeep 231 but a lot cheaper
