maybe you had a 242 Tcase, the cases are a bit longer, other than that this is a standary slip yoke. 231 case. looks identical to mine when it was stock

Your pic is an Auto tranny setup........the seals/yokes are different.

I'm want to replace the seal on your 92? or swap the whole thing?

Driveshaft lengths will be if you use the newer setup you will also have to use the same D-shaft.

thats the post 96ish tcase and slipyoke. The good thing about that is if your rear shaft drops the tcase still holds the fluid. The bad part is the driveshaft is shorter which give vibes with less lift

Go for it. But be careful when you test drive it, that "rattle noise" might just be the exhaust clamp u-bolt at the muffler/cat that's not exactly all together in the pic you linked.

Yeah, just like my '98 XJ. NP231. I have 4" of lift and it did vibrate quite a bit. With the SYE, no vibes.
