Well everyone, I jsut did the big swap on my 94 gc. originally had a 249 which was replaced due to a vc failure with another 249 temporarily. But yesterday i switched to the np 242. The t case came from a 93 gc and it was pretty much a direct bolt in plug and play. As far as I know, the only things that you need to watch is for the year of ur t case. 93 I believe seams to be the year they changed it all? anyways. I bought the 242 from the scrap yard and bolted it in. Drive shaft fit perfectly, didn't need to swap input or output luckily. Adjusted the shifter for the t case and everything was up and running. But at first I got a reading from the VIC about servicing the 4wd switch. this is not a problem though as Swamp boys write up says, you just need to unplug a few wires and it is all perfect. It is a night and day difference so far. haven't done any wheeling yet, but man does this swap rock. Thanks to swamp boy, I had to join the forum.

lol, with a set of brand new tires mounted... My dad would be really happy with me. But it sounds weird having a jeep with 2wd, so having a pick of that makes people think hard.

When I had a 242 from a 97 5.2 GC, a family friend rebuilt it for me. I've noticed that there are overhaul and rebuild kits available from the same manufacturers. They cost different so what is the difference between an overhaul or a rebuild kit for a TC?

Most of the time overhaul kit has only soft parts (seals, gaskets, clutch pads) while rebuild kit also contains hardware part (like chain).
