Just finished a 249 to 231 swap on a 96 4.0 ZJ. The doner case was out of a 98 4.0 XJ. Input bolted right up used the linkage in the ZJ and the shift tab on the 231. Speed sensor from the 249. The ZJ has a 3.5 Tuff Country lift. The Driveshaft was an inch too long so cut the outputshaft down an inch and the slipyoke down an inch, leaving 4.5 inches of spline engagment.(better than stock on the XJ) Didn't bother with the fwd light thing...

Cool... Thats works... I just made adjustable control arms and pushed the axle back to give the driveshaft room but cutting works to...
