Zumbrota Bearing and Gear sells transfer cases for a variety of Ford cars, trucks, and SUVs.

When most people jump into the cab of a four-wheel-drive (4WD) or all-wheel-drive (AWD) pick-up truck, very little, if any, thought goes into the associated gears and processes that allow the vehicle to go charging off-road with full 4WD or AWD power. It’s generally understood to be a given, like the sun rising each morning or setting each night.

In actuality, the processes and gear assemblies needed to make 4WD and AWD a reality can be particularly complex in today’s modern pick-up trucks and other 4WD and AWD vehicles. At the heart of a these systems is a transfer case, an important component that transfers power from a vehicle’s transmission to the front and rear axles via drive shafts, thereby powering both axles at the same time and providing 4WD and AWD.

4WD and AWD capability is especially important when it comes to heavy-duty vehicles, such as Ford F-150 pick-up trucks, which are often used when extra-heavy towing capacity is needed. Additionally, Ford Explorers and Ford Rangers, which are often taken off-road onto treacherous terrain, require the combined traction and control of all four wheels working simultaneously to safely journey through adverse conditions.

Not surprisingly, extra-heavy towing workloads and jarring off-road excursions can take their toll on a 4WD and AWD systems, especially the transfer case parts that make it all possible. Therefore, it’s not uncommon to require a rebuilt or brand new transfer case installation at some point during the life of a 4WD or AWD vehicle.
