Please, need some info.

Haven't gotten what I needed from my other threads, so hopefully this does it. I am taking off school tomorrow so I can head down to Columbus and find a transmission, and possibly a transfer case. I don't want to leave school and take a 3.5 hour drive for nothing, so PLEASE help. Let me sum up my questions:

I have a 42RE. What would it take for an AW4 to work from a Cherokee? Torque converter I know, what about wiring, mounts, transfer case linkage mounts, shifter linkage, etc?

Transfer case: Want a 242, however will settle for a 231. Most of what I've seen is people needed to shorten their driveshafts. I measured mine so I can check, but does anyone know if the rear driveshaft from a Cherokee might be the correct length? The shifter gate is optional, correct? What about the shifter tab? I can make the 242 tab work, or shorten my 249 tab, right?

5spd: If I find a 5spd cherokee, what parts will work? Can anyone find that 5spd swap write up? I cant seem to locate it...

Thanks!
