QU40499 NP241DHD 4x4 and NV4500HD 4x2 Rear Output Slip Yoke with a 2-3/16" approximate outside diameter is a genuine original equipment part for coupling your rear driveshaft to New Process NP241DHD transfer cases with 31 spline rear output shafts in 1996-1997 Dodge Ram 4x4 trucks. QU40499 is also used on 1994-1997 Dodge Ram 2500 and Dodge Ram 3500 4x2 trucks with Cummins Diesel or gas V-10 engines and NV4500HD transmissions. This slip yoke directly replaces production yokes with vibration dampers. See QU40700 for a less expensive yoke without a vibration damper. Matching universal joint is TK40705. Made in U.S.A.
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 1:
Lubricate the seal lip and yoke shaft with clean grease or petroleum jelly to provide initial lubrication.
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 3:
Always replace the rear output bushing and seal when installing a new yoke. For NP241DHD 4x4 Transfer Cases, use with QU90025 Rear Output Bushing and QU50171 Rear Output Seal. If you have a 4x2 truck with a NV4500HD 5 speed or NV5600 6 speed manual transmission, use QU10025 Rear Output Bushing and QU10023 Rear Output Seal.
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 4:
This 31 spline transfer case rear output yoke takes universal joints made to Spicer 1410 series dimensional specifications. The u-joint cup diameter is 1-3/16", the overall u-joint width must be 4-3/16".
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 5:
This Slip Yoke has one double width spline so it will fit shafts made with 31 narrow splines or shafts with 29 narrow splines and one double width spline (what is called a 30 spline based on 31 spline).
