Weasel will become famous soon enough
Not really. The older one can have the chain slack problem like this thread, and the front output shaft splines can strip on some of them as well. The x-drive is not going to have the output shaft splines problems and is not going to have the chain slack problems... because all the abuse gets thrown to the clutch pack, which is what wears on them causing replacement costs.

Pretty much either one is just as likely to get worn to the point of repalcement over the years. But that is with anything with a transfer case. I've repalced them on fords, chevys, dodges, jeeps, etc. Unavoidable costs of having a 4 wheel drive vehicle.
