Pulled the front drive shaft to stop the wheel hop till I decide to rebuild the 249 or swap in a 242. Also cut off the muffler. It had a small leak but it was just the excuse I needed. The 9er sounds so angry now!!

You could possibly use Ice & Water Shield on the back side of the panel, kind of like a big, super sticky bandaid.

DON'T use super glue! It takes a LONG time before it stops giving off fumes that will burn your eyes when heated, such as sitting in the sun on a 90+ degree day. Trust me.... Been there, done that, & learned the hard way...

YEah. My only thought was I think the 249 is better for wet and snow covered roads. The 5. 9 is purely a street queen. I have the WJ as the trail rig. Then again the WJ has a 242 and I love it

As crazy as people have been about swapping in 242s, I think the forum majority now says fix the 249. Even though I don't get better gas mileage in 2 wheel drive and the full time isn't quite as good as the 249's full time, I'm glad I swapped in my 242. I like having the option of locking the transfer case in 4 high if needed. Full time, although it's not as good as viscous coupling, still works great in the rain (I'm assuming the snow too although I haven't had the opportunity to use it yet). I'm not convinced strength is a valid argument for the 249 either. Sure, the 249 may be rated for more torque (1800 ft. lb. for 93-95 and 2030 ft. lb. for 96-98 as compared to 1486 ft. lb. for the 242), but in reality they're all rated for GVWs up to 5500 lb. Not to mention, a 5.2 has how much torque? 300 ft. lb. First gear has a ratio of what? 2.740:1. Multiply that out. What do you get? You get a max torque of 822 ft. lb. Even after you take the torque converter into consideration, you're still under the upper limits of the transfer cases.
