Why 4WD Enthusiasts Should Know About Transfer Cases

If you are off-roading in your SUV or climbing junk cars in your monster truck, you probably have all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. If this is the case, then chances are good you have a transfer case. So, why is it important to know about transfer cases? Easy, a transfer case distributes power from your transmission to your front and rear axles.

There are several different types of transfer cases on the market today. You can find chain driven or gear-driven versions with some versions that are independent of the transmission while others are bolted directly to the transmission. Transfer cases have several different gears, with some classified as low-range gears for mountain climbing or off-roading, and other gears that will switch back and forth between 2WD and 4WD.

Do you want to take your SUV or monster truck's rock-climbing ability to another level? Come see us today at Blake Fulenwider Ford and let one of our techs get your gears in working order.
