I have an 06 LJ w/ 65k. I went out in a snowstorm last Saturday night. When I put it in 4High; I started hearing a loud squeaking noise from the drivetrain while under way.
Took it to the dealer today to be told it needs a new NP231 transfer case which cost around $1200!
Only thing is my wife talked me into taking a lifetime bumper-bumper mechanical warranty on it which is paid in three years(that was 2 years ago). Second best decision I've ever made!(next to her of course!)
$50 deductuble is getting me a new transfer case! How cool is that?!

That sucks. At least it's getting fixed. Can't complain about paying $50 for the t-case and labor.

I blew a fist sized hole in the 242 under my ZJ, Sunday. I'm in the middle of putting in another.

sounds like a happy ending....although i'm interested how the squeak translated into a new TC. even bad bearings can be replaced. oh well...good thing you had the warranty!
