Customer Question

I have a 2000 Dodge Durango with a 242D transfer case that is no good. Will a 231D HD from a 1999 Dodge Durango be an acceptable replacement?

Hello and welcome to just answer. Let me look into this and see. I should be able to have an answer for you within the next half hour.

Ok, just checked this out and it will work. The difference is that the 242 has the "full time AWD" option whereas the 231 is either part time 4WD or 2WD. So you will loose the full time AWD but the mounting, linkage, etc is the same. I hope this is the information you were looking for and please let me know if you need further assistance with this.

how would I be able to shift the transmission into 4wd? or into 2wd for that matter, if my shifter doesn't match up?
Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

You could change the bezel that the shift lever goes through. Then the indicator for 4wd and 2wd will be correct.

When you get the transfer case from the 1999 Durango, get the transfer case lever bezel at the same time.

Duh! I'm buying the whole durango so that is doable! I just wanted to be sure the parts would interchange before I bought it. Thanks!
Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

Gotcha! Then you will have everything you need to do the swap. You are welcome, and I hope that I have been helpful!
