An aftermarket VC is about 300 bucks, whole case isn't worth 300 bucks. I have no desire to be in 4wd every mile of every day. Absolutely no need. Hurts performance, uses more gas )not much but some) and it eats up tires faster. I did the 242 swap, love it, would never go back to a 249, rarely use 4wd period, didnt even need it through the snow last year. Anyone stupid enough to launch in the snow deserves what they get anyway.
