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...

Did you use the port closest to the firewall on the passenger side? Grey cap if i remember correctly on the 5.2?

P0132. Google says it's Bank 1 Sensor 1. So I am assuming the Drivers side upstream O2?

242 swap, without a doubt.

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.

Yup. Lo side. Took most of a 22oz can I had already and half of a 19oz can I had to go get.
