Could have sworn the 242 is part time 4x4 whereas the 249 is the AWD option.

I saw a YJ at Walmart today that had a sticker on it that read " its a TJ thing you wouldn't understand". The owner was getting out of it at the time so I walked by and said "nice TJ" he said "Thanks Dude!! I put a lot of time into her to make her nice".
I wished I would of got a pic it was a driving hardware store with towel racks for a push bar and home heating louvers cut out in the hood. Chicken wire for light guards and chrome stickers all over everything.
I chuckled and got in my truck, he didn't catch my sarcasm.

Full time and awd are the same. Part time is the new lingo for 4 high.

The 242 has 2wd, 4 full time, 4 part time, and 4 low.

It essentially just adds an AWD option in addition to the standard ranges the 231 has.

I can confirm that the 242 is the part time and full time 4WD with a part-time 4LO. This is what I had yanked out of an '88 XJ for use in my YJ. I love this option for two reasons; 1, in the winter I can shift to full time 4WD for when I have patches of ice and snow on the roads, and 2, to use when I am climbing or driving on a sandstone shelf to prevent driveline binding.

If I remember correctly, the 249 is only a full-time and does not have a 4LO option, but I will let the experts chime in on this.

Edit: This is what I had pulled up on the 'net, and I was correct;

"The NP-249 which is a full-time transfer-case that utilizes a viscous coupling to act as a limited-slip betweed the front and rear driveshaft. One of the main drawbacks of the '93-95 ZJ version of this case is the lack of a low-range lock. In other words, if you get into a sticky situation and need both driveshafts turning to get you through, this transfer-case will only act as a limited-slip and not mechanically lock the two driveshaft to turn in unison."

The VC goes out a lot on the awd Transfer cases. Stick to the 231j with bits of the 231c to beef it up.

It has low gear, I have one in my 96 ZJ.

I get mixed reviews saying that the NP231 is a weak transfercase and the moment I get a little giddy with the skinny pedal behind a v8 is when it will blend the internals, yet others have told me it's perfectly fine to use behind the V8.

Mine has held up so far, and I have been taking advantage of the power I wish I would have listened to Anti and done the wide chain/planetary from a 231c while I had it apart, and I still plan to, but I think it will be fine. I think worst case ill stretch the chain first. I dont think my rear tires like me right now. Youll be fine

So perhaps I should just do the wide chain upgrade while I am at it since it's all out of the Jeep, and will be awhile before things start going back together.

Actually looking forward to putting a spotlessly clean and freshly Monstalined Jeep back together

Dont forget the 6 pinion planetary.

Speaking of, my buddy has a wrecked 94 blazer with an np233. Is it useless to me? I hoped it would have the 231c.
