Can I drive it around in effectively 2WD drive - I'm assuming the belt broke and cracked the case.??? I have a new transfer case on the way.
surprised by the bad TC, it can be driven in 4x4 all along, with the NP229 which IIRC is the OEM case, recheck the tag to make sure that you have a NP229 and not a np228 which can only be driven in 4x4 when the road surface is slippery because the NP228 does not have the viscous coupler that allow different rotational turns between front and rear. BTW it is a chain driven TC
here is a pict of a NP208 tag, yours will have the proper ID
74 wag, 349Kmiles on original ticker/trany, except for the rust. Will it make it to the next get together without a rebuilt? Status: needs a new body.
85 Gwag, 226 Kmiles. $250 FSJ test lab since 02, that refuses to give up but still leaks.
