    Are there any differences between the 208 and 208c? I also heard to avoid 241s from 93 and after because they are weaker. Is this true? Whats the difference that makes them weaker? Thanks.

    an NP 208C is for a Chevy, but its a regular NP 208. The NP 241 is a little stronger than a 208 and it has a 2.72:1 low range insted of the 2.61:1 for the 208. The 241 also has a better lubing system.

    Thanks for the response, but I already know the diffreences between the np241 and np208. So the c just means it is for a chevy? And are later np241s different than earlier versians?

    I think that the letter designation is typically used to identify what vehicle the transfer case is used in. For example, the 231 used in Dodge Rams is a 231D and the one in Jeeps is a 231J. There can be some internal and external differences between different versions as they are kind of "fine-tuned" for each specific application.

    Do you thinh it would be a good idea to change from a 208 to a 241?

    You wouldn't gain much by going from a 208 to a 241, just .11 of low range and a better lubing system. I'd just keep it full and it'll be fine, the 208 is still a good t-case.

  7. The only big advantage to the 241 over the 208 is you can buy the slip yoke elim kit and a 4:1 low for the 241.This is the reason I'm thinking about going to a 241.

    If you needed to change transfer cases anyway, and the prices were pretty close.....than yes, I would get the 241.
