I did my 242 swap today! let me just tell you this, i NEVER want to see another snap ring in my life! haha. I used the jeephorizons 242 swap writeup as a guide and there were quite a few things that were left out that could have been very useful. I didnt have the time to take pictures and do a write up but i think im going to make a thread about my experience vs the jeep horizons writeup so they next guy doesnt have such a hard time.

And this is what i think of my 249...

Did the front driveshaft work out with the 242? How does it feel with the 2wd?

both the front and rear shafts are fine. it did pull the front shaft out a little but nothing to be worried about. Its awesome having 2wd. you can definitely tell the difference. now i just need to replace my CVs with ujoint shafts to completely eliminate the front end noise. it is a lot quieter is 2wd

and i should be getting my locker next week and that 8.8 is tempting but i just put in that 44a. it would seem like a complete waste of time, even though it basically was...lol does it have discs or LSD?
