Hey fellas. I scored a jeep cherokee for practically free. Its an '87 pioneer with hella cool wood panels. The 2.8 doesnt have the best track wreck cord, but runs good. I will pull the 'saggy waggy's' suspension in favor for a grader ball and junkyard axles to turn my 37" OZs on recentered H1s. Soon, you will see -wheel it @ smorr like the cool kids stocked and locked..  BTW..Im not turning to the "other" side, I still like my Jap rides.lol.-tg-

Travis,I looked up the info on the np228,and it is a FULL TIME case offering the following modes:2H,full time 4x4 High,N,Low Lock.The first two positions are controlled by that vacuum switch in the cab,and with the switch in 4,pulling the range lever does two things;engages low range and locks the center diff.The np229 operates the same way,but instead of the open diff in the np228,it has a viscous coupler.You might consider swapping in a np242,which offers 2h,4 FT,4PT,N,4L.You would gain a high lock position with the swap,but with a 2.8 and 37's,you probably won't be able you utilize it.

What spline counts is the tranny output Travis, I have a 23 spline NP231 if they are the same I would be willing to trade for those bucket seats that I never came up with the money for. This wedding is taking every extra dime I have right now.

Im gonna sport the current -case because it has a fixed yoke and slightly lower range than most. I also plan on swapping the 1st gear from the 904 with that from a 42re, which is also lower by about half a rotation.-tg-

The 242 has a 2.72 ratio vs your 2.61 and slip yoke eliminators are available,but I don't blame you,might as well keep what you have.

I didn't realized it had fixed yokes. I don't blame you for wanting to keep it. As soon as my wedding is over in oct. I will see if you still have those bucket seats because I don't see me having any extra money till it and the honeymoon are over.
