so i found a 91 xj for pretty cheap but the transfer case chain is slipping how easy is this to change.... or is it better to just get a whole new case?? it is a pretty good price to start with so a little bit of $$ to repair wouldnt be the end of the world. thanks Very Happy

It's not hard, but, and I can't express this enough, take your time and do your homework. Get the exploded diagrams, have a clean surface to break the t-case done on, take pictures, make stacks as everything comes out, cover the spring clips with a rag to prevent them from taking flight, ect. Not to scare you, but it can go south fast. Be confident going in and you should have no problems. Cool

$60-80 for the chain. You can find rebuild kits for $250-300 range, but that includes everything you could posibly need. Use your Google-fu and they're not hard to find.
