I made over 600 1/4mile passes with my 241DHD, before I started to get "glitter" in the t-case fluid. I replaced it with a 271. It is physcially bigger, as well as being stronger. I got mine from Transfer Case Express. They can set it up so that you have the same shift pattern as a 241. I also had them put a flange on the rear output instead of the slip joint. The drive shaft had to be modified to have the flange as well. The front drive shaft fit without modification. The rear may have, but I wanted the flange, for the added strength.
The newer 2nd gen's use the speed sensor in the rear end for the speedometer. The 271 does not have a place for a speed sensor in the tailshaft housing. I have heard that someone makes a electronic kit to make the speedometer work with a 271, but I do not know who it is. It was not an issue on mine, because my 241 did not have a VSS (vehicle speed sensor), in the tail shaft housing.
