    Theres a circular metal disc on the back of the transfer case that will have the model number stamped on it.

    205 t case is best identified by a small circle on the backside with 3 bolts holding it on. About 2" in diameter.

    There is sometimes a tag on the back of the transfercase to tell you what you have. Alot of times its missing.

    All aluminum, 208 or a 241.

    There ya go!

    And now cut that picture resolution in half (or quarter)! :eek1:

    They are a full-time 4wd case. Decent in strength but not really good or bad.
    Just different.

    It can be converted to part-time 4wd but for the expense and effort, it's easier to switch to a different case.
    If it's already been converted, then... *shrug* run it till it breaks. :)
