So I need a new rear oil slinger for the transfer case on my '97 wrangler but all the ones online look different than what I find online. The dealer has the part at $28 vs the $8 that it goes for online so can anyone verify that the part will actually fit?

This is the one that I can easily find online


The one that came out of my transfer case is round and doesn't have the two tabs that the one above has.

Thanks in advance!

That picture isn't a slinger, it's the dust cover on the rear output yoke. Now what the part number actually is, who knows.

I can't think of where a slinger is in a 231. You sure there is one?



Number 6 on that callout but ended up going to the dealer and apparently that linked one superseded the one I had on mine. I've yet to put it all together though so we'll see. Still trying to source one of the retainer rings for the output shaft

Weird it's called a slinger being on the outside of the oil seal. Sorry for the bad info.

A lot of guys change out the tail to a slip yoke eliminator for better driveshaft angles, if there's a 4WD club near you, find somebody who's just done an SYE, and they'll have that retaining ring (#7) in their pile of leftover parts.

Hey no worries at all man, and the ring I'm looking for is actually closer in size if not identical to #2 in the callout, just not a snap ring and it's solid all the way through. Checked with my local jeep expert and he never stocked the part either :D :banghead:
