The 241 transfer case was never an option for the 1500 series Rams, only the 2500 and 3500 series Rams came with 241 t-cases. The 1500 series Rams come with a 231D t-case. There was only one difference between the 241D t-cases throughout the dodge lineup, there was an option for a PTO on the 241D on the 3500 series I believe, not sure if it was an option for the 2500 (don't see why not though). This t-case is a highly desirable one, as it is rated for like 1200 ft-lbs. of torque, and is VERY stout. IF you can find one, expect to pay $700-$1000 from a junkyard. But it is a very capable unit, and would be a good upgrade.
Actually, what you just said is true, the Ram 1500 does come with a 231HD, it is just badged a 231 D to differentiate between the t-cases. The others are 231 J and 231 C. The difference is the Dodge one has a larger output shaft than the other two.
Yes, that is correct. The 231 D (Dodge 231) is a HD version or the 231. The Dodge 231 is the strongest out of all the 231's, because of the larger output shaft, that is why it is called "Heavy Duty". D on the end stands for Dodge.
That PTO version is the keeper of the T-cases!!! Good Stuff! Can you snap a pic of it V10, so we can post the different versions here? I will do a writeup and stuff, that way it is easy to tell the difference. You can send the pics directly to me, and I will post them off my website.
