Mopar v8 swap with mopar tf904

I have this thought of doing a mopar v8 swap in my 89 yj.
It has the tf999 and stock transfercase.
This is my question: Can I put the internals and tail housing from my jeep tf999
And put it in a mopar tf904 housing??
If so, it would be a piece of cake to do this swap.
It would be a tf999 with mopar bolt pattern.

Best regards
Klas

I think so. There may be year to year differences, like lock up torque converters, etc. but should work.

If thats the case, why doesnt more people do that? It have to be a catch somewhere.

personally I have no clue if it would work or not, but I'm curious - why not just use the 904 as-is?

You have to put the tailhousing from the tf999 on the 904 to make it work with the transfer case.

Also the 999 has a 2.74 for the first gear vs 2.45 for the 904. I have heard that you can use the jeep output shaft and tail housing on the 904 but haven't heard of anyone doing it. I am using a 727 trans from a mid 80's dodge truck as its beefier and will bolt to the NP231 in my YJ after I change the input gear on the transfer case.

Yes this^^. And I believe the 245 and 274 gear sets can be swaped also.

I rebuilt my tf999 a couple of years back, regret that I didnt think of checking this, since I have a tf904 laying around.
