I think mr. green is on to something with the side wheel drive thing. See if you go in reverse if the left side will spin, that will lead us somewhere.

That side wheel drive thing never caught on though...apparently people didn't like going in circles on ice.

The NP 207 is one of the weaker Jeep transfer cases, but can be upgraded. The NP 207 has an aluminum case and chain driven planetary reduction. Thankfully the NP 207 was installed behind some of the weakest Jeep power trains every used. It featured a 2.60:1 low range and a straight through design high range, but featured a driver side front output. It was used in one year of the Jeep YJ Wrangler 1987, and in the early XJ Cherokee's from 1984-1987

I found one page with conflicting info, but since it agreed with you, I left it out.:tonka:

Just do what monkey boy said.


I am guessing that your t-case is not shifting into 2hi.


Just take out your diveshaft and be done with this silly argument.

Your front driveshaft will spin in 2wd if it is truly in 2wd. Just climb under the jeep when its in 2wd (and not on!) and try to spin the shaft. If it won't spin, then go to a mechanic and figure it out.

I think the easiest way to fix it is leave in the current 2hi position. Drive around a parking lot in tight circles for 10-15 minutes slowly then crank the wheels all the way to the left or right til the 4wd starts to bind and then MAT IT until something snaps. VIOLA no longer stuck in 4wd.

His vacuum disco is disengaged, but he has a locker. Or did you not read the part about side wheel drive.

If it doesnt spin the other side in reverse then it is not a linkage issue. I forget what side these TCs normally get stuck in, this may be a common issue.

But most 4 wheel drive vehicles use the driver side as the drive side. I've never heard of a t-case getting stuck in passenger side drive only. I figured it would lock into the driver side.

He should just put in a selectable locker, like an ARB or something so he can control what tire he wants to drive the jeep.

He said it spins the front passanger tire. That means that he can't have a locker, because the driver side would only get power with the disco unlocked.

haha we are going to run out of colors

Subaru's have this "side drive" problem quite often......... Something about wheels that slip, wheels that grip?
