249 to 242 swap done
96 zj, 5.2l - had 249. I swapped in a 242 from a 98 ZJ. The input shaft was a match. Front driveshaft fit perfectly. I had to shorten the rear driveshaft. The ZJ is stock in every other way - no lifts, etc. The 242 case was 1 inch longer overall, so I had the driveshaft shop cut off 1 inch. It seemed liked it still needed more room when I installed it. Has anyone else without a lift had to shorten their driveshaft, and if so, how much was it shortened?
