Only takes about 5 minutes to do, if you find the plugs right away. Good luck with it though.

If you look at my VIC, it only took me 6 minutes to pull it out, and I was fiddling with the camera quite a bit, lol.

hey boss,
ive got a 231 sittin in the garage at my parents house back in nc. Its out of a 97 or 98 TJ. i would love to use it for my swap and save some dough but my zj is a 94. im worried that if the shafts arent the same size, which they more than likely arent, then the gear cut will be different. there is really nothing i can do but rip them apart and see, huh? great write up btw
