    VIBRATION DAMPER transfer case

    http://project-jk.com/jeep-jk-write-...r-case-service

    Am looking to rebuild my transfer case, 07 Rubicon. On back side of rear case half is a vibration damper as illustrated in first pic of Eddie's write-up on t-case service. My question is: how is this damper attached to t-case and can it safely be removed since Jeep did not use these on future builds?

    Looks like it's held on by 3 bolts. It should come right off.

    Sorta like a gyroscope. It spins and keeps the thing it's spinning on even with no vibrations. Unless it's off balance, then you're fucked.

    I have been trying for some time now to find a diagram of how this applies. Can't find one. Does it go through the case here and attach to the front output shaft?

    I don't know about the Jeep transfer case. I replaced one on my old S15 Blazer years ago that was attached to the crankshaft. I would assume the transfer case would be the same idea.

    It’s attached by 3 bolts and can be removed with no issue. There is no spinning or anything like that that was mentioned. I actually installed one on my 2015 after long fight with vibrations.

    No spinning. It’s literally just a heavy hunk of metal isolated in a bracket with a rubber bushing.

    Spinning was the only thing that made any sense to me, just could not figure how it was attached to any moving components. Seems very odd that it would help.

    I noticed a difference when I put it on. You’ll see weird dampeners like that on some vehicles. Kind of like the “dogbone” on mustangs.

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.
