Default NP241 & NV241 Transfer Cases

New Process and New Venture NP241 Transfer Cases Used in Dodge 4x4 Trucks

Dodge NP241's have a planetary low range ratio of 2.72:1. There were numerous design changes in the 241 during its production life making parts selection a bit tricky without the transfer case build tag. There is also some confusion over New Process and New Venture production of the 241. All 241's were manufactured at the New Process Gear plant in Syracuse, New York which became part of New Venture Gear when Dodge and GM merged their manual transmission and transfer case production in the early 1990's. The build tag found on all 241 transfer cases feature the New Process Gear name, so for purposes of consistency, we generally refer to all 241 transfer cases as the NP241.

Late Model 1987 to 1993 Dodge W150 and W250 trucks (except Cummins Diesel models) have the two speed, NP241D, chain drive aluminum transfer case. All 1994-2002 Dodge full size, 4x4's are equipped with one of two different models of the NV241 transfer case. Starting in 1994, the stock 1500 and 2500 transfer case was the NP241DLD (Dodge Light Duty). Optional on the 2500 and standard on the 3500 was the NP241DHD (Dodge Heavy Duty).
