Case Halves and Brand New Transfer Case Assemblies
Typically, the aluminum main case castings on NP241DHD transfer cases will last the life of the vehicle even though they do not appear to be near as rugged as the NP205 cast iron cases used on 1993 and older 4x4s. However, there are a number of situations that can wreck one or both case halves. Since Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 4x4s have coil spring front suspension with light gauge trailing arms, any accident involving a front end impact is likely to push the front axle and driveshaft backwards which can break one or both case castings. Other common killers are loose chains wearing through the case, whacking the case on a rock when off-roading, and operating the unit with low oil. Link to Our Dodge Web Page Index

QU10819 1998-2002 Dodge NP241DHD Transfer Case Synchronizer Blocking Ring is a genuine New Process Gear Replacement Part. Since most people do not use 4x4 all that often, wear is not usually an issue with these Blocking Rings, but of course some will need to replaced for one reason or another. The tapered inside of the ring fits a matching taper on QU10921 Upper Sprocket. QU10819 Synchronizer Blocking Ring fits all 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 trucks with NP241DHD transfer cases plus all 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 trucks with NP241DHD Transfer Cases. Made in U.S.A.
QU50354 1998-2002 Dodge NP241DHD Transfer Case Synchronizer Sleeve is a genuine New Process Gear Replacement Part. Actuated by QU10929 Mode Fork, this part will rarely need replacement unless there is an underlying problem such as broken Shift Fork Pads that inhibit smooth shifting between 4x2 and 4x4 modes. QU50354 Synchronizer Sleeve fits all 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 trucks with NP241DHD transfer cases plus all 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 trucks with NP241DHD Transfer Cases.

QU11166 1998-2002 Dodge NP241DHD Synchronizer Hub is a genuine New Process Replacement Part
Tools
NP241DHD Transfer Cases can be rebuilt with a minimum of special tools. One exception is replacing the thinwall rear output bushing which is pressed in an aluminum housing. Many very expensive rear extension housings and new bushings have been wrecked by folks trying to do the job with makeshift tools. Our Bushing Installers makes the job quick and easy.

QT2044 1996-1997 Rear Output Bushing Remover and Installer is a low cost, CNC machined steel tool made to remove and install the QU90025 NP241DHD Rear Output Bushings from all 1998-2002 NP241DHD models with 31 spline rear output shafts and one piece tailshaft housings when doing off vehicle gearbox service.
(continued from above) in the NP241DLD/DHD during its production life;  making part(s) selection a bit tricky without the round transfer case build tag affixed to the rear case half. Most, but not all 1999 to 2002 Ram 2500 4x4 trucks with the High-Output Cummins Diesel NV5600 6 speed transmission have a NV241DHD.

Despite the many assembly variations, there are a few common characteristics shared by both DLD and DHD models. All these cases will have a slip yoke rear output, left drive chain front output, with CV flange and mechanical shift engagement.  The cases will  also have a 6-gear planetary 2.72:1 ratio low range. 1998-2002-1/2 models have a transfer case mounted vacuum switch, which controls the front axle disconnect system. Late 2002 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 4x4 trucks did not have the CAD feature so transfer cases for these late production trucks will have an indicator switch for the dash display instead of a vacuum switch.

All 1998 and 1999 plus some 2000 gas V8 trucks with a manual transmissions and all automatic trucks regardless of their engine have a 23 spline input.  Whereas, all manual transmission trucks with a Cummins Diesel or Gas V10 engine will have a 29 spline input shaft.

The NP241DHD has a 1-1/2" wide chain, a bearing supported planetary, and a SAE 6 Bolt PTO opening on the right side. 1998-2002 NP241DHD Transfer Cases have a 1-5/8" diameter 31 spline output shaft. These transfer cases have a one-piece tail housing and take a slip yoke that is about 2-3/16" in diameter. 1998 to 2002 models do not have any provisions for a speedometer because the speedometer signal for these years is generated by the ABS sensor on the rear axle. If you are trying to swap parts between cases you will find some parts are interchangeable between the DLD and DHD models for a given year, but many are not.

Scouting for Elk
On Line Creek Plateau scouting for Elk and Mountain Goats
Line Creek Plateu is not far from our store so you can see our buildings from many places on the Plateau if you know where to look. Most of the Plateau is above the tree line. Elevation at this point is about 9700'. At the time this photo was taken, a healthy Elk herd with 200 or more animals lived here as they had for decades. Sadly, explosively expanding wolf populations from Yellowstone virtually wiped the Line Creek herd out within a few years of this photo. The fragmented remnants of the herd were driven down into farm country along the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone. Now one can ride for miles across the Plateau and never see any elk or signs of elk. Undoubtedly, at some point predator and prey populations will adjust on the Plateau. In the mean time, one misses the thrill of seeing the elk that once thrived there. Before man in his wisdom imported large numbers of a non-native sub-species of the gray wolf from Canada, and dumped them willy-nilly in Yellowstone Park.
