5.7 / 6.1 Hemi Swap

A quick question for those who have done the swap into their JK's

which transfer case are you mating to the 545RFE?

I have a drivetrain less 2007 JK with 1 Tons and long arm + 14" ORI. I sold the stock 3.8L and stock trans long ago - but have retained the 241J 4:1 Tcase.

I had the Rubicon transfer case for about 5 years in my 5.7l Hemi equipped JKU and switched now to an Atlas, because the chains in my Rubicon transfer case had been stretched too much.

I run stock Transfer case in my 2011 Gen4 5.7 VVT. It handles the power just fine.

I ran the Rubi case behind the 5.7 in my TJ Brute conversion for years without issues.
