241DHD vs 271 Transfer case

Does anyone know the specifications on the 271 T Case? I probably need a new tcase, I just cracked my 241DLD.

Is the 271 a LOT beefier than the 241DHD?

What are the ratios of the 271 in low range?
IIRC the 241 is 2.72:1

THanks
Garrett

Going by memory the 241HD is only rated for about 10k lbs. The 271/273 are rated at about 18k lbs. I know there's a chart floating around somewhere.

The 271 is alot beefier case then the 241. It will fit in our trucks. I have one in my 99', some driveline modifications are required though. Worth it if your gonna sled pull with your truck.

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.
