Which 242 without swapping inputs?

96 ZJ 5.2

Swapping to 242, just wondering which 242 from which specific jeep (XJ/ZJ) and years will allow me to bolt up without swapping inputs.

I used to have a site that listed every Jeep transfer case with input lengths and everything but I can't seem to find it anymore!

93-95 V8 ZJ's: 46RH transmission, 1.55" 23 spline input shaft
93-95 I6 ZJ's: Used both the .750" and .840" 23 spline input with the 42RE and AX15.
93 I6 ZJ's with the AW4: .750" 23 spline input
All 96-98 ZJ's: .840" 23 spline input

This helps, I guess I should just ditch trying for any 93-95 and stick with strictly 96-98, but is this the same for XJs? XJ cases are usually a dime a dozen

I just did the same swap with a 96 5.2 also. I bought a 242 from craigslist with the same length output with the right spline count but the input had a spacer inside. needless to say i had to crack it apart and remove the spacer from the input. good thing i did cause the plastic inserts on one of the forks were gone.

For Sale: 91 YJ Sahara 4.0, 5 spd, 33x12.5x16 Pro Comp AT's, 4" lift, rear slip yoke eliminator, rear disc conversion, dual Optimas, Borla header cat-back, Tuffy console.

96 ZJ Laredo, all stock, 4.0, auto, 4x4 & 96 ZJ Limited, all stock 5.2, auto, 4x4 242 swapped in
