Did my 242 swap on Saturday. Everything went great and only took about 2 hours from start to finish. Bad news is I *may* have gotten a bad case, but I think its more of a linkage problem, as I only used the shifter base from the donor vehicle.
I get a grinding/rattling sound, even when driving in 2WD, my only concern is that the noise continued even when disconnecting the linkage, but I may not have the shifter tab all the way in the correct position as well.
I picked up 242 linkage from the junkyard yesterday, so I'll toss that in real quick tonight after work. The good news is the driveshaft from the donor vehicle was a perfect fit.

I went to pull a part to snag a gas tank skid plate but of course they had the jeep sitting where I couldn't get it without a jack so I will go get it Sunday. I did grab the front skidplate, 3 doors worth of weatherstriping, both Apiller trim pieces, random electrical connectors, and a 2wd cubby piece. If any one need the 2wd peice shoot me a email. tokool52002atyahoodotcom wanting 20 shipped
Well like an idiot I sold my 95 ZJ last spring for fuel economy. Well now I don't have to travel and gonna go look at another ZJ. Found a decent looking 98 with a 5.9 and a 2" lift. Stupid me decided a Subaru would be better. A little cheaper on gas but costs a fortune to maintain the damn thing.
Got my winch plate, and winch mounted. Dually lights will be here Wednesday, as well as some material to build a bumper around the plate. So Thursday hopefully, ill be able to build a bumper, and wire up all my lights.
Took out interior panels. Replaced every ****ing clip with new ones. Not a single squeak when I hit bumps now except from whatever I have in my cup holders. Glad I bought these by the 50 pieces qty. So happy. Also installed new Hella horns and picked up more busy work to do. Cleaned the windows and discovered my D44a outer seal is leaking. Need more money.
I second this, I bought new clips (maybe 3) for some absurd price. These promptly broke, and I said to hell with it and busted out the drill. Viola.
Today I picked up a new blend door motor from a local salvage yard, I'm trying to get my Jeep ready for a 600 mile round trip to Iowa and back to pick up a motorcycle, in a U-Haul. Blend door isn't really a necessity, but its a convenience.
Next on the list, remove the old brakes, use the lifetime warranty and replace all the brakes on the Jeep.
Per suggestion, possibly replacing the auxiliary transmission cooler with one from a Ram 1500.
Last night i got the hp30 all buttoned up. The battery was dead from sitting, so i jumped it, and took it around the block a few times, and have to say that I am a happy man. The only things left to do now are buy a tire and fix the rocker. And of course fix the TC input seal that I've been meaning to fix for like 6 months. I'll get to it eventually.
