when you finish swapping your 249 for a 242, everything goes smoothly except for the VIC plug change. You test the zj first, 4wd works fine, no problems, nothing on the VIC, and you wonder why to bother changing the plugs behind the VIC. Say "Screw it, lets find out." you then remove the VIC, unplug the red plug and plug the black plug together instead. And poof. "service 4wd switch" rears it's ugly head and annoys the crap out of you.

so, having the wrong plug installed = nothing on the VIC, no warnings, no problems. plugging in the RIGHT one in it's place = annoying complaints and a sudden urge to throw out, then back over, the stupid VIC.

When you decide to chance the storms and head to the river with the wife and kids we are babysitting, finding a stuck vehicle with nobody around for miles. I am thankful we decided to go and was able to come to the rescue.

1996 ZJ - That 2nd Oxygen sensor, yeah some serious butt connectors and heat shrink there, how is that for off road modification! - Still stock.

..when your glad your VIC went out before you did the swap, and never even thought of this problem!

One day I guess ill unplug the VIC and maybe put a cubby, but if its broke, and works fine for you...don't fix it.

96 ZJ sittin up 6" on 35's with 4:56's and a 12k winch. Cuz...why the hell not!?

I never get waves. Do a lot of waving but none in return...

Money doesn't buy happiness, but it buys a Jeep. And I ain't ever seen a sad person in a Jeep!!
