View Full Version : T-case options?
11-07-2002, 12:33 AM
I'm just wondering what the transfer case options are for the 03s? Is there a heavy duty option similar to the 241 hd? I will be doing 4x4 launches, thus the curiosity. Thanks

Extreme,<br> The cases in the 2500's and 3500's are 271/273's (manual/electric shift).<br>The Boss Hog
That's right! ;D<br><br>Nice that the "standard" transfer case is now the HD. 8)

Is anyone else annoyed that a manual transfer case is not available with the Laramie package?<br><br>IMHO there are a few things that have no business on a 4X4 that is used for serious off-roading. 1. CV Joints 2. Auto-Lock Hubs 3. Slushbox Transmission 4. Open Differential 5. Electric Transfer Case<br><br>Maybe I just need to get with the times. It is not realistic to expect D-C to cater to the needs of the off-road crowd when over 90% of the 4X4's made never leave the pavement.

;D<br><br> I would have rather had the manual shift as it's probably more fool proof in the long run. It would also match the 6spd better.Then again my 95 had a manual shift that was very difficlt to impossible to shift on the fly in cold weather. According to DC at the time this was nature of the beast in cold weather. It did shift perfectly in warm weather when I didn't need it. So as long as the electric works in all weather and doesn't give me any problems I'll be happy.<br> Pete

I've been 4x4'ing in the rockies for 10 years now with an electric transfer case and have never had a problem with it. In those 10 years I've put on 234,000 km (145,500 miles). It' s also seen duty in the snow and ice, hunting, hauling and tugging other folks out of their low points in life. Just my opinion, but I for one like the electric transfer case and it's on-the-fly engagement. 8)
