Anyone done this? Been searching the forum for a bit and never seen anyone mention doing this. I'm getting a lot of slack in the transfer case when shifting from P to R, and R to P. From my experience in the past, I'm going to guess I need a 3 way puller and some big socket? It's the NV245 transfer case. Also, is there a gear drive conversion available? Google doesn't give me anything, but I'd figure I'd ask.

No input from anyone?


Take a look at the front diff cover, there is a bushing in between the "ears" that come off the front cover and the bracket that comes down from the chassis. At least on my 06' that is making some noise when I shift from forward to reverse and back. It was allowing the front end to rotate.The dealer only wanted $55 for a new one. Hope this helps some.

I can see the slop between the input and output of the transfer case, but I'll definitely take a look at what you described.

I called my local dealership and they told me they don't replace the chain, only replace the entire tcase for around $2k...wtf...that doesn't even make sense.

A gear drive conversion? Like this?

Atlas-JK : Atlas 2 Speed T/C for Jeep JK's | Advance Adapters

Might have to clearance the floor a bit. Also fab up a shifter and new drive shafts. :)

Unfortunately I may be in the same boat as you. Think my transfer case chain is acting up but fist I'm replacing the front driveshaft because its CV is worn hoping this cures my problem.
If it turns out to be the transfer case time for a 241OR transfer case out of a Rubicon JK....I'm kind of hoping my transfer case is toast lol .

You can buy replacement chains for the transfer case.
CHAIN. Transfer Case for 2006 Jeep Commander. #05161964AA

I haven't checked the service manual but I don't think you need anything too special in the way of tools to change the chain.
