Hey, that's MY input shaft in that pic above! FWIW, if anyone is looking for someone honest and straightforward to build a converted 231/242 for a V8 ZJ, JrMechanic is the one. If you are put off by the idea of having 1.2 million parts laid out on your bench and rebuilding a case yourself, have it done for you. I'll be putting in a thread soon on my experience with him and his product soon, but early indications are he's the guy to go to for this.
1994 ZJ, 5.2L/46RH, NP242 & D44HD Swap, 4" SA Lift, 31" KM2s, and all the usual... I only lifted it so I wouldn't have to drive my grandma to church anymore... ;)
