I have been told I could replace the drivechain in my wife's 2000 Grand Cherokee with a NP 242 J transfer case. I started it today, but couldn't get the read driveshaft loose from the transfer case. It has the boot at the front and the plate mounted to the case. I have read all the forums I colud on doing this, but cannot find anything that explains how to get this driveshaft off. Can someone please help? Confused

the rear drive shaft or front ?

for the rear undo the 4 small bolts on the rear drive shaft u-joint then push forward on the shaft so it slips in the transfer case then lower it and pull it out .

a small amount of oil will come out (ATF)

for the front just undo the 4 bolts holding the u-joint on the front axle then the 4 bolts holding the u-joint on the front of the transfer case .

have you ever done something like this before , a t-case is a complex little box .


if that doesn't work then you have something i have never seen on a 242 before in that case take a picture and post it . im guessing it isn't lifted and doesn't have a slip yoke eliminator if it did it would be just like removing the front shaft .
