Tcase upgrade question

Ok someone that knows more about transmissions than me help me out please.

I need to upgrade my Transfer case.
I'm still running the 231 snapped an output shaft this past weekend.

What are my options for going bigger without dropping coin on a damn atlas?

I would like gear to gear I have a D300 in the shed but I don't think it will clear my trans.

Other thing is I like the gearing my rig has right now so I would like to retain that if at all possible.


1997 Dodge Dakota
5.2L V8
42Re Trans
231 Tcase
60, 14 bolt axles with 5:38 gears
43" Sx

I have 5 or 6 of those outputs if you want some spares. I upgraded to a atlas and love it

Send a message via Yahoo to joe_jeep
most normal light duty dodges are 23 spline. should be a pretty straight forward swap.
you want a dld 241 (dodge light duty), not from a diesel or v10.
the case is physically bigger, tunnel or crossmember might need massaging.
check the speedo output, i think some are vss some are not.
i think the dodge 241hd is 27 spline.

98+ have the speedo output on the rear axle, below that it is on the t-case but the sensor from the 241 should work.

Trans out put shaft size is what would determine what trade you would want
