241 HD Transfer Case VS 241 Standard

Advantages VS Dis-Advantages my 2002 Dodge Ram-2500 Automatic Seems to steer Harder than my Brothers 2001, Dodge-2500 also Fuel mileage seems to be much worse than his 2001 Dodge-2500 with the 241 Transfer Case.
Question is is there anyway to disconnect the front Axle from turning the Front Drive shaft all the Time. The 2002 is Bone Stock and only getting on open road around 16 mpg so the computer says.

Your HD or non HD version 241 basically has nothing to do with this. Sounds like he has CAD and you don't. Some people don't like the CAD setup, I definantly do. BOth HD and standard 241's came with and without CAD. My '01 with a standard 241 has CAD and my dad's '02 also has CAD, but with a 241HD.

I don't quite get the harder steering thing though, although having the shafts turning {could} possibly make a non CAD truck harder steering, no one else has mentioned this that I know of and that little of resistance shouldn't make a difference steering. That, or someone left the Tcase in 4hi.

Non CAD trucks could suffer from slightly worse mileage, but mileage seems to vary too much from one truck to the next to nail down 4wd setups as the culprit.

The non CAD axles won't even take a manual operator. I beleive they have a one piece axle on the passenger side.

As for fuel mileage don't trust the on board computer. Its never quite right. I would hand calculate your MPG.

As for a slight loss for NON-CAD axles... Hmmm... I don't seem to have much of a loss for a 6,800# truck that had Non CAD axles. As a matter of fact my MPG numbers are going up right now...:thumbsup
