Ok that would be better then due to the fact we mainly use as a daily driver. When you buy the 231 or 242 does a new shifter come with it to tell if you are in 4 hi or lo and what about locking the hubs?

I was in the same situation your are in now. I couldn't decide between cashing out and buying the 249 rebuild kit or doing a swap to the 242 as most people will do.
I like my 249 and the way it works so i decided finally to rebuild, i purchased everything from Nick Kolak, he is on here quite frequently. I paid $500 for my overhaul kit, that is the VC, chain, and seals and all.
The kit just arrived this afternoon. I'm hoping to rebuild it this weekend. I know its a lot of money, but i like the way the 249 works and its never failed me in the snowy/icy winters.
note: the 4wd function in the 249 and 242 are NOT the same. the 242 is not a "locked" tc like the 249 in 4wd. in the 242 your will have to use parttime 4wd to have the locking action, which in this model is not good on the pavement.

I agree that the 242 does lack the "handsfree" convenience of the 249 though.
