Stryker…Shift Away Transfer Case Damage

Drivers, that grinding noise you hear when you shift your Stryker’s transfer case into low gear on the fly is more than just annoying. It could mean that you’ve done some serious-and expensive-damage to the transfer case.

You must bring your vehicle to a complete stop before shifting the transfer into low. If you don’t, the transfer case might start complaining loudly. Vital parts can crack, meaning you might be unable to shift it at all. Replacing the transfer case will set your unit back more than $21,000 for a flat bottom Stryker and more than $38,000 for a double V-hull Stryker!

Here’s the right way to shift your Stryker’s transfer case into low gear:

  1. Come to a full stop.
  2. Apply the service brakes.
  3. Put the transmission in neutral.
  4. Apply the parking brake.
  5. Shift the transfer case to low.
  6. Release the parking brake.
  7. Put the transmission in D (drive).

Now you’re ready to drive without doing any damage.
