hey my jeep is stuck in whis and I have just come back to town to find a part and guess what, everything is closed!! *I broke the rear output shaft from my tcase and need to find one asap (everyone is still in whis waiting for me!). It is an 89 YJ w a 4.2L, so I am pretty sure that it is a NP231 tcase. If you think you have one that I can buy off you please call my cell at 604 617 8788. Thanks in advance, James

Put it in 4hi, disconnect the rear driveshaft and cruise home in front wheel drive.:confused:

Did it break inside the housing or did the shaft break on the outside?

Heehee, its a 231 in a YJ, you cant disconect the rear driveshaft, the fluid pukes out.

Actually with a broken output shaft you probably couldnt drive it anyway, since depending on where it broke the rear bearing wouldnt support the shaft, which the chain does go around.

Its all a moot point now anyway, BCAA got him home, and he needs a slip yoke and tailhousing.
