    The NP205 is good if you have the money to adapt it to the 700r4.

    NEVER been stuck... *yet* (4wheeling)

    The NP-241 is a fairly strong t-case. Nothing is as strong as the 205, but if you're not having any problems, there is no reason to spend the extra cash for the swap. The 241 also has a couple of good aftermarket upgrades available such as the slip yoke eliminator kit and 4:1 low gear sets. The 241 is also much lighter than a 205 and is fairly easy and cheap to rebuild.

    The 241 is a good, strong, light case. Unless you plan to run 500+ HP, there is no reason to change. It also has the advantage of a 2.7:1 (?) low range, vs. the 205's 2:1.
