I am bolting in the slip yoke to the transfer case. Installed a Dana 30 pinion seal in Dana 35 rear axle. Installed a front output yoke of 231 t-case as pinion yoke. Then I am installing a front driveshaft in rear backwards. Double cardagine joint at pinion yoke. I will show pics when finished.

I think I figured out my 231 transfer case issue. I watched a video of a rebuild and I reassembled the yoke forks wrong, time to remove and crack open. I will take before and after pics.

The 231 that I bought has studs for the transmission that I want to replace. In shipment, they got slightly bent. I can't find replacements anywhere, so if anyone has a suggestion as to where I could get them that would be a huge help.

Why do they have you use linkage from the 231? I did my swap yesterday and had to use the one from my 249. The 231 linkage was too short and 249 linkage worked fine and I get all my modes.

I used the stock linkage on my 94 249 to 242 and used the stock linkage on my 95 231 to 242 with no problems.

iann32 thanks for the help on the setting of my shift linkage on my swap. When I split case open I reassembled front low range fork incorrectly as you can see in my pics pervious. My friend and I finished it then did a test drive worked fine all four gears and then toasted front left rotor. Now replacing, calipers, rotor and pads on both front.

Can you put a 249 tail housing on a 242 with external slip yoke?

Help: Rear left lock doesn't lock using power locks, but will unlock. Any ideas?

did my 231 swap today on my 98. used a 231 from an 01 XJ. Stock 249 linkage worked great with no adjustment needed.

Did have to shorten my drive shaft just over an inch however. nice to have 2wd when i want, and hopefully no more broke front axles from my tight VC in the 249.

Who ever has done this if they could guide me I have to do this over the weekend and need it to at least drive in 2wd. I have a 98 grand 5.9 limited thanks.
