Did you clock the output flange on the transmission? The pattern is 10 degrees lower on the XJ AX-15. If not tough break.

NAPA has 5 different pilot bearings listed. I bought the 3 likely ones I needed and returned the two that weren't it. Like $6 each except the one I needed was the $8 one.
Clutch pilot tools- any parts store should have a set of wooden ones for cheap. I have a bunch and some old tranny input shaft ends in my tool box. Haven't needed to buy any new ones since like 1990!

Like Rambo mentioned...hopefully you clocked the mounting bolts. It's pretty easy to do. All you gotta do is make a bolt pattern out of paper or cardboard, clock the pattern 10*, mark the holes and drill them (on the transmission) for the transfer case. You'll be glad you did....
