Got a 92 jeep cherokee with cracked tranfer case, if I dont use 4 wheel drive, can I let the transfer case run out of fluid? How difficult to swap with junk yard unit?
Thanks

NO!

Transfer Case supplies drive to BOTH front and rear drive shafts and axles.

If you let it run dry, it will VERY LIKELY Grenade on you!

Why own a JEEP if you aren't going to use 4 Wheel Drive! That's no fun!

I would say this swap would be a pain in butt but do-able. You will get very dirty, very angry and most probably use language unsuitable for children!
You should first invest in Factory Service manual (FSM) and a good size floor jack, sturdy jackstands (unless lifted far enough to provide easy access) a good range/assortment of tools and a reliable/accurate torque wrench.

How did I do Phantum?

It's not to difficult to swap out a t-case. It's not light, so having a buddy around to help wrestle it in/out would be a good thing.

Get the Jeep on jackstands and drain both the tranny and the t-case. Then support the tranny with a floor jack (use a block of wood to keep from damaging the pan) and remove the crossmember. Next, drop the front and rear driveshafts, disconnect the 4WD shift linkage and unplug the speedo sensor. Then just remove the bolts holding the t-case to the tranny.

At that point remove the t-case, install the "new" one and put it all back together.
