Please Help!! 2000 durango transfer case 244 to 2003 durango transfer case.
I have a 2003 Durango and was driving to work a few weeks ago when my transfer case blew up and took out my front drive shaft. I have replaced the front drive shaft but I have been struggling to get a straight answer as to what transfer case I need. I know that it is the model 244 from my vin number but that seems to be the only ting I can get a straight answer on. I have been unable to find another way to work and have been out of work since this happened. I may have found a transfer case that will work but even dodge can't tell me if it will work. I have talked to five parts departments and dodge itself several times. Here is what I know for sure. The transfer case in my 2003 is a 244. The transfer case that I found that I can afford is a 244 but would be coming out of a 2000 Durango. If this one wont work could someone please help me to understand why not and if anyone knows what years I can get the 244 transfer case from that will work with my vehicle it would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise can someone give me the right questions to ask to get the answer I need from dodge. They are telling me the only way they could know for sure is if I bring it to a dodge dealership and pay to have it evaluated. I am starting to get very frustrated and need to get back to work.
I really appreciate it.
