Swapping 96' np249 for 96,97,98 np242

Hey everyone I'm in the middle of swapping my 249 for a 242 I found at a j/y. I know the part vehicle is a 96 or higher, does that mean the input shafts are the same and it should just be a swap out/swap in setup? Also will all the sensors from my 249 plug right into the new one?
Thanks

It should be a direct swap, but you won't know until you drop the 249. The input shaft should have .840" exposed (just over 3/4"). Could be different though if it's an early 96.

Sensors will be just fine.

Awesome thanks. I haven't looked at the shaft length on either, hopefully neither are early 95's.

Take a look at your door tag - what's the manufacture month?
