I need to replace my transfer case. Will a 241 HD from a V-10/diesel fit without any other mods? I thought in a previous Four Wheeler article, this could be done.

it can be done because the 241hd is offered in 1/2 ton trucks like the offroadster, but i believe someone told me that you have to change your driveshaft, i think i am not too sure about that though


i asked the same question when i blew my t case,

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.

No problem, man.

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.

There wasnt a 241 in a 1500. A 241 should bolt right up. By the way I have a 2500 with a 241 HD with PTO provision. Its an option a a 2500 standard on 3500

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.

Ill snap a few pics in a little bit. The downfall to the PTO version is that there isnt a SYE availiable for it. Something about an extra bearing being there.

Are all 241 HD cases equipped with the PTO?

I have an 02 Cummins with the 241HD but I don't think it has a PTO.

Thanks,
Sean

The PTO is the rust colored cover on my pics. If its a HD 241, it will have a pto. 241d's do not.
You pull the cover and put a driveshaft there.

I may be wrong but I believe it has a wider chain and I know it has an extra bearing. The HD T case was a 100 dollar option. It came with the truck if it was ordered with the snow plow prep package.

You could get it without the snow plow prep option.
The snow prep option was a few bucks more. 100 for the HD case by itself.
