Your fleet vehicle can run in several gears, allowing it to power itself as needed for various terrains and situations. The primary forces behind your vehicle’s ability to change gears are the transmission and the transfer case.
Transfer Case Service
Your vehicle’s transfer case pulls power from the transmission and transfers it to the front and rear axles via the drive shafts. Sometimes the driver directly controls the transfer case by using a shifter or a switch. Transfer cases allow trucks to maneuver normal roads by synchronizing the difference between the front and rear wheels. If the transfer case is designed for off-road use, it will mechanically lock axles as needed to prevent the vehicle from slipping and to provide better traction. Malfunctioning transfer cases can severely affect the way your vehicle moves, so it is imperative to have it maintained and serviced regularly.
