    Very interesting . I can find a 241 and it will bolt in place of my 208 in the pretty truck :thinking:

    I thought it was 241Js only not 241Cs.

    Jeep Rubicon's come stock with a 4:1 geared 241J but the parts don't interchange with the 241c. That is an aftermarket gearset to change the low range from the 2.72:1 that it comes with stock to 4:1.

    Put a Klune-V in front of the 241, it will only add like 2.5" to the drivetrain. :D

    For $1800 you can buy a Rubicon RockTrac (NP241OR) and get giant planetaries and a fixed yoke instead of spending $1400 for weak compound planetaries from that company.

    The planetary gearset in the 241OR is HUGE! New Process redesigned the gears and really beefed up the housing with lots of extra gusseting, to be sure that the t-case could deal with the additional torque loads. The planetary set in it is about twice the size of what you can squeeze into a standard 241.

    Like CyberSniper said, buying a whole t-case that was designed from the ground up to have 4:1 seems like a much better idea since the cost is about the same. :eek1:

    What's so skeery about running a high pinion driver drop front axle?

    The only difficult part is that they don't come 32 spline input.

    People are flipping them upside down. It doesn't take that much effort, really. I've been contemplating flipping my IFS 241 upside down.

    I heard that the planeteries arent strong enought to handle very much abuse,
    rockcrawling, big tires etc.
