NP242 vs NP231

I have an NP242 TC and I can't find any sye's for it. My question is, what's the difference in the two? And am I going to have to replace my TC if i go any bigger than the 3.5" that I'm at right now?

RE for a Hack and Tap, and AA for a short shaft kit.

There are plenty of SYE's out there for the 231.

Look on www.Jeepinoutfitters.com

Or use the search function or Google

Yes, the SYE's are not interchangeable.
The 242 is a awd/fulltime t-case.

Your first post says you have a NP231, did you mean that you had a NP242?

There are SYEs for both, but the NP231 has a LOT more options for them. If this is for your 95 (and it has a NP231) then really you have the same amount of options but they are both expensive. For the price, you can't beat a HD 32spline SYE. PORC sells a decently priced kit, I installed that on my 93 and it went together nicely.

Yes, I did mean NP242. Must've had a brainfart.
