Learn the step-by-step procedures for tearing down, rebuilding,and improving the most popular Jeep transfer cases by using thiscomprehensive manual written with the do-it-yourselfer in mind.

The transfer case is arguably the heart of any Jeep. It’s the key component that splits power to the front and rear axles and ultimately provides the traction that has allowed Jeep to maintain its legendary off-road status for nearly 80 years. Jeep used several different transfer cases in its various vehicle models, many of which have an excellent reputation and remain sought after today. But even the best mechanical components can wear over time and need periodic service to ensure decades of reliable service.

While transfer cases may seem complicated on the surface, theycan be successfully rebuilt by a competent weekend mechanicwith surprisingly few specialized tools. Jeep Transfer Cases: How to Rebuild: This covers rebuilding the most popular and widely used transfer cases found in dozens of Jeep models for decades, including the Dana 18, Dana 20, Dana 300, and the NP231. The entire rebuild process is shown from beginning to end while providing valuable pointers, complete specifications, and a list of the specialized tools that are required. Also included are tips for upgrading these cases for better strength and off-road performance, including deeper low-range gearsets, slip-yoke eliminator (SYE) kits, and much more.

It’s not a truck or a car—it’s a Jeep! Developed in the early 1940s as a light reconnaissance vehicle for the US Army, the Jeep successfully transitioned from military usage to public use with the arrival of the CJ-2A in 1945. Many more CJ models followed, which cemented the Jeep as one of the most successful and longest-tenured models when the CJ-10A was discontinued in 1986.

With more than 1.5 million Jeeps sold, a restoration book for these vehicles has been desperately needed. Author Mark Altschuler of restoremyjeep.com showcases his decades of experience in this must-have restoration book that features component restoration of all aspects of the timeless Jeep. Step-by-step procedures document the disassembly, restoration, and reassembly of your favorite models, while color illustrations depict exactly what you’re wanting to see as you address your project.

About the Author

Mark Altschuler is not your run-of-the-mill Jeep Restorer. At age 15, Mark was selling used cars out of his parents’ driveway before he had a driver’s license; at age 17, he bought his first Jeep, which led to a 50-year love affair with this unique vehicle. In the late 1970s, Mark had a restoration shop in Milford, Pennsylvania, where he restored and sold two MBs and GPWs per month. Today, Mark is a busy licensed auctioneer, but he still finds time to have a least two Jeeps in the shop at any given time.
