Ok, I just picked up my ram, and I noticed a grinding noice during accleration, and while breaking in reverse. I just took it in because I didnt want to deal with it, and the shop told me the 231HD is giving out (at 60k miles) and that i need a new one at the price of $1200. I know that is too much, but what does it sound like whats wrong. He just sat there telling me how much my giant lift and WAY too big tires are killing my truck, and that it is already ruined (96 ram 1500 with 3" rancho and 33" bfg muds on 15x8's). I am in a real pissed off mood, and I want my truck back, or I may just sell it now. I am getting tired of it. But what does it sould like, and what shoudl I do? I am thinking of just buying a used TC with a warrenty from the wreckers, and put it in myself. But I dunno what to do. Thanks for the help. Garrett

Don't buy a used transfer case, you already have one. Common on Dodges most likely worn shift fork and a few other parts, have yours rebuilt.

get a factory manual and do it yourself...it's really not that complicated in there...

Time of an Atlas!
The others are right. It is really simple to rebuild your T case. Give it a shot and that way you can see what is causing the problems.
