I am blowing about $200 a week on premium gas so I think 2wd would help quite a bit. Therefore, a few more questions: If I swap in a 242 will I lose my "Low-Lock" capability? My local shop manager is convinced that I have a center diff instead of a viscous coupling- I believe that the 242 does not so I am assuming I would loose the lock in that. If the WJ 242 is not an exact swap- what year/model is? I am on a budget since gas is so damned expensive and I would like to make this as painless as possible.
Repeat of my earlier post:
I have a 98 ZJ 5.9 with the 249, can I swap in a 242 "HD" from a WJ? I am not familiar with the WJ's 242 does it have the regular 2high, 4lo, 4hi part time, and 4hi full time? Will I have to buy new driveshafts?

The only way to tell if it will fit is to put them side by side and measure the input gear..

The 242 does lock in 4 part time and in 4 low..

YOu shouldnt need new drive shafts ..
