Basic function of transfer case is, it splits the engine torque coming from the transmission and delivers it to output shafts that connect to driveshaft’s leading to the front and rear axles. Most transfer cases designed for off-road use are able to mechanically lock the front and rear driveshaft’s together, so each end of the vehicle gets an equal amount of engine torque.
There are two different types of "internal workings" found in most transfer cases. Gear-driven transfer cases can use sets of gears to drive either the front or both the front and rear drive shafts. These are generally strong, heavy units that are used in large trucks, but there are currently several gear drive cases in production for passenger cars.
Chain-driven transfer cases use a chain to drive most often only the front axle, but can drive both axles. Chain-driven transfer cases are quieter and lighter than gear-driven ones. They are used in vehicles such as compact trucks, full size trucks, Jeeps and SUVs. Some off-road driving enthusiasts modify their vehicles to use gear-driven transfer cases, accepting the additional weight and noise to gain the extra strength they generally provide.
