Well that could be a solution too. How does the front axle get power with the drive train taken out? By some other means? Sorry about the double posting

The vc controls power going to the front wheels in normal operation. In 4lo the axles are locked together by other means in the transfer case.

No one can answer this except the shop you use.

Id guess around 350. I'm going at rate of 80-120 hr depending on the shop. Do it yourself in a weekend

If I were in your shoes I would (or have somebody) just replace the viscous coupler and be done.

^- this. The best option on a daily driver that is used on the trails every now and then. 249 AWD on slippery weather is a LOT better than the 4 full time on the 242.


Also, as was already mentioned, if 4wd is only needed for trail runs and RWD is enough in daily use year-round, keep the front DS bolted in and remove the VC from inside the transfer case. This will leave you with RWD, and locked 4wd LO.

Yep. Sounds like he needs some axle joints too!

Do you mean front driveshaft? No issue on the '96-'98 ZJs with the front DS removed. Only on the '93-'95 you should not remove the front DS with the 249 TC.

I guess I should have asked WHY cannot the front DS be disconnected? However I do have a '96 and a 249 with a VC and now I do't have to worry about disconnecting it to eliminate that awfully annoying whining upon deceleration. As I understand it the pinon bearing in the front diff needs replacing !! And an axle shop is the only way to go!!

Without the vc how are the axles locked for trail runs. Tranny shop said 150 to 200 for the swap if I took the one out from my 96 myself. Do I need new axle joints? In addition to the CV joint?

Its not shaking at 45 with a constant squeak that gets worse the faster you go. I can hear scattered squeaks at lower speeds but not nearly as bad when shaking.

4lo works because power does not go through the VC to front wheels when in 4lo on the '96-'98 249.
