    Is there an image of this tag? See where the ratio is engraved? I've heard of people getting cases with switched out tags, so the only way to know for sure, is to put it in 4Lo and turn the shafts by hand.

    I see you have a 2013. Is the transmission automatic or manual? I don't know if that case will fit your Jeep.

    I'm not sure if it will fit or not. Some JK's had 241j in Rubicon's, but idk if it will fit yours.

    During my research I noticed that on what appears to be the newer models (2016) the tags are no longer attached... The part number and ratio appear to be engraved directly into the case where the tag used to go.

    I'm in the middle of doing this right now with your writeup. Thank you! I'm a bit stuck trying to get the plug off the top, mostly I'm afraid of breaking it. I seem to break every electrical connector when removing them (fat fingers). Did you just push in and pry up with the screwdriver on the side that the little tab is on?

    I also had to take off my EVO transmission skid to make life easier. It was just one more thing in my way. First time I've seen the bottom of Beast's engine in over 4 years. EVO skid is doing an amazing job, the engine and transmission look newish underneath a rig where everything else looks battle torn!

    Yes, just gently pry it up.

    Thanks for the reply, it pried off as you said. Wow, you weren't kidding about those bolts on the driver's side being a pain, but as you mentioned, flex head ratcheting wrenches did the job (albeit with a lot of grunting and groaning).

    When I went to put the new one in, I noticed I was going to have a hell of a time! There are no studs sticking out of the front of mine to pass through the transmission, but the holes where the studs should be! Looking at the old transfer case now removed, the studs are threaded on both ends as expected. There's no where to grip them or get a wrench on the old ones, and channel locks mar them up without turning them.

    I'm thinking Motech removed them so that they wouldn't get damaged in shipping? Going to have to call the dealer tomorrow and try and find out if they are even available locally. How do those get torqued in? There's no where to grip them.

    Did everyone's transfer case come with the studs already in it to mount it to the transmission?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
