I've searched your archives for an answer, no luck. What do I need to use a '96 NP231J in a "95 Cherokee Sport? I know the slip yokes are different, '96 is external and '95 is internal. Can these be swapped over somehow?

Thanks for any help on this.

you should be able to swap case for case with out a problem as far as i know .i know there are two sizes for the input shaft.i think there is a 21 spline and a 23 spline.as long as the input splines match your good.

Thanks Badger, they are both 23 spline input from the transmission, I was just worried about the slip yoke in the rear, my rear driveshaft on my '95 is splined and it slips into the transfer case, on the '96 transfer case I want to put into it, the transfer case has a spline sticking out of it. Just not sure what to do about the different tail pieces.

well you are going to have to have a new driveshaft made up.what you are effectively doing is an SYE of sorts.you are going to need the mounting flange that goes on the new one to make it happen.

How about a pic of each to help with the visual? It's my impression that they're all pretty much the same. If an SYE has been installed, you shouldn't have any spline showing on the 96 case. You would have a output yoke or flange depending on SYE brand.

Could I use the '96 transfer case along with a '96 rear driveshaft? Seems this may work, but I don't know.
