Last part first...
The Sammy has a 'divorced' transfer case meaning it is a seperate component. The Geo Tracker uses a transfer case that is attached to the transmission. So no, it won't swap out.

Two things may be happening in your t-case. The first may be a worn counter shaft that is causing your gears to chatter.

The other possibility could be the front output gear or bearing. It's a 20 year old t-case... treat it to a rebuild and it can fix most of the possible problems. Wait too long and you could end up like this... BTDT.


Caused by worn counter shaft

Even a stock rebuilt t-case will cost some bucks, so if you are looking to replace yours anyway, go with a rebuilt with gears to offset any larger tires you may be planning to use. A GRSII will take good care of you up to a 31" tire. If you buy it complete (ready to bolt in), then you can trust the work that Gary and his staff put into it.
