When people think of a desert, they think of stereotypical images of barren plains, flat, and barren. That’s one perception of the desert, however except for isolated patches, a great chunk of the Arizona Desert is actually incredibly diverse and varied terrain, and one of the best ways to see it is in the comfort of a four wheel drive vehicle. 4x4ing on established trails is a great way to see the beauty of the Sonoran desert particularly in places like Bulldog Canyon.
However, like all mechanical parts, your transfer case will sooner or later will need some scheduled maintenance or even transfer case repair. Under no circumstances should you try this on your own.
What is a Transfer Case
What is a transfer case? According to FOURWHEELER.COM: “No matter how simple or complex your transfer case is, this is what it does: It splits the engine torque coming from the transmission and delivers it to output shafts that connect to driveshafts leading to the front and rear axles. Most transfer cases designed for off-road use are able to mechanically lock the front and rear driveshafts together, so each end of the vehicle gets an equal amount of engine torque.
Depending on the age and design of your transfer case, torque is delivered to the front output shaft either through a set of gears or via a chain. Most present-day T-cases are chain-driven, as the chains have proven to be lighter and quieter than gears. Hard-core ’wheelers tend to prefer the old-school gear-driven cases, however, because they can withstand greater amounts of torque without breaking. And gears will never stretch like a Chain might when it’s under extreme stress.
The age of your transfer case also has a lot to do with the material used to construct its housing. Older T-cases, like the NP203, NP205, and the Dana 300, were built with cast-iron housings. They’re heavy, but bullet-proof. Since the 1980s, the quest for fuel efficiency has caused manufacturers to turn to lighter materials, like aluminum and magnesium, for T-case housings.” [READ MORE]
