    Fixing stuff!
  1. I know oil based compounds can slowly weaken paint and cause bubbling, but never heard of Silicone doing it.
  2. Yes. I'll grab some examples here shortly. This current issue is that the threaded hole for the vacuum sender is missing on this case. Same part number for front case half, but different build. If that is all that is wrong you could just add the Pozilock axle engage and do away with the vacuum system for the front axle.
  3. That is some serious custom work, Ben. You are an excellent fabricator and problem solver.
  4. I'm leaning toward a complete case now. I have already had this thing assembled and torn down 3 times.
  5. Well, 2 incorrect T-case halves from North Country Gear later, my transfer case is still out of the truck. I sent photos over, discussed numerous times which truck this is for (97 Ram 2500 4x4, NV4500, 12 Valve Cummins), and included the part number which is stamped on the case half. Still the wrong case half. Does anyone happen to have an NP241DLD (Or similar) for sale? I need to be using this truck, and since buying it i've gotten to drive it once.... So bummed right now.
  6. This is turning out awesome! Love custom work like this, it inspires me to try new things. My 97 needs clearance lights, and a ton of interior work. Has a messed up door hinge that i might consider fixing via welding after watching you play around. Keep it up!
  7. The conversions might go for that, but when you start adding wheels / tires into the mix that price-tag definitely shifts. I plan to make a custom flatbed for it or use a service bed, no junky dually fenders for me.
  8. I am searching for a driver door that will fit a 97 extra cab Ram. Hoping for a "complete" door w/ hinges. This needs to be the rounded bottom corner, and anything with rear doors that open won't work. Thanks!
  9. Hey Fellas, I have a 97 CTD 4x4 with single rear wheel. I'm looking to convert this rig to DRW for towing. Any chance someone wants to trade? It would be front rotors / spacers and rear axles. My wheels / tires are in decent shape, can exchange more detailed info if someone is interested. Cheers!
  10. I'm also interested in that bed. Would look awesome on my 97 4x4 ex cab. Nice truck there
  11. Turned out to be a great chat. He has the case I need and the bearings to rebuild. Thanks!!
  12. I checked the flea-bay, but didn't see any front cases for NP271DLD.. I'll check again over the next couple days
  13. Can i use any NP241 case for this swap over? I was only searching for NP241DLD, and have found zero helpful results. I've also been looking for bearing / seal kits for this, and most are labelled for NP241DHD
  14. Hey Fellas, Sooooo, i picked up a 97 Ram 2500 4x4.. At first glance it looked pretty good. 170k miles, AFC still wire tied, stock fuel plate, blow-by wasn't strong enough to make the oil filler cap dance at all, trans was tight, new clutch. I parked it overnight, and there was a MASSIVE puddle under the t-case in the morning. Long story short, i removed the trans and T-case only to find a massive crack in the NP241DLD housing (The large side), and a sheared bolt in the input shaft housing... Good times. So, any chance one of you guys has a T-case for sale? If not, possibly the case for it? I'd also happily upgrade to an NP241DHD If there are other Tcase options out there, i'm all ears!! Thanks!
