I need a transfer case for a 1987 YJ. If you have one for sale please give me a call or text to 314-574-8765. Mine was killed by a hidden rock

Thanks! I am not sure but it's a stone stock yj. I think it is a 21. I know its a NP207. Please let me know how much you want for one.

$100 as it sits. $150 if I need to change out the input shaft to fit your Jeep (I've got many input shafts). A new chain is an $80 option if you're interested.

I'll take one. Do you recomend going with the NP231 or sticking with the NP207?

I dont think I need a new chain. what are your thoughts on that? Any idea of how I can tell if if mine is the 21 or 23?

Do you know if I will need anything else to match this up to the stock trans?

Thanks for the help.

I recommend the 231 over the 207 for more aftermarket support, more parts availability, more OEM heavy duty upgrades, and the ability to flat-tow if needed. This may help with info: http://bc4x4.com/faqs/yj.cfm?cat=6&faqid=141

The new chain option is up to you. You're buying a used transfer case and an $80 chain is often cheap insurance against the case having a stretched chain. I recommend a chain replacement for anybody getting into a transfer case with over 80k miles.

Sounds good. I'll take the 231 with a new chain for 150. how soon do you need your $$?

Do you know if I will need any adapter plates or anything to make this upgrade?

Thanks for the help

Check my post again, 231 with new chain for 150 wasn't an option. It'll cost more.

No adapters needed as long as the 231 has the correct input shaft.

The stock 87 YJ with manual trans came with 21 spline on the NP207. So, I need the 21 spline NP231 with a new chain. The link you sent was a great reference. They also say that I will need the linkage for the swap - the 231 is longer. can you include that? if not, I can buy it from Chrylser for cheap.

I looked through our string and all I see is $100 for the T case or 150 if you need to change the spline. Whats the total for the NP231 with 21 spline and a new chain and the linkage?

Thanks again for your help on this. I'm bummed because my buddies are going out today and Im broke down. Oh well - that's wheelin!!

Are you able to pull the 207 to measure the length of the input shaft?

$230 for the 231 t-case with a new chain.

I don't have any 207's, I scrap them as soon as I get them. I won't rebuild one. Let me know if you're interested in my 231.

If the price is an issue you can always do the chain later, if even necessary.

Thanks again for your paintance with this.
I tried to put in the new leaf spring and it looks like I bent my axel. Nothing lines up on the drivers side. Do you have a Dana 30 front end also?
