Rebuild the NV231J

97XJ, 4.0, AW-4, 231J, 3" lift, 440K miles.

My Transmission failed last week and I am going to get it rebuilt. (2nd tranny)

While I'm at it I will get the Transfer case rebuilt too as it has 440,000 miles on it.

I was thinking of getting the Novak master rebuild kit and have the tranny shop install it.

Is this a good kit or should I consider another kit?

Re: Rebuild the NV231J

Can't comment on the Novak kit, having never used one.
i have used rebuild kits and SYEs from JB Conversions, with success.

Re: Rebuild the NV231J

If you are going to pay a tranny shop to do the job why not have them source the parts?

If you provide the parts there will probably be no warranty on the work they do, whereas if they buy the parts it will be warranted. At least, that is how things work in the world I live in.

Re: Rebuild the NV231J

Thank you for your advise.
I took it and let the shop source their own parts.
