Price: $100.00
Pros: 2WD option versus on a NP249
Cons: Full Time option not as good as a NP249, Especially in the snow but will work.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Did a 242 swap from my 249 with worn out viscous coupler. Cheaper going this route versus $400 plus from a new VC only for that to have go out again in another 100k miles. I plan on keeping the ZJ forever so I don't want to address this again.

Price: $200.00
Pros: multiple mode
Cons: my second one is acting up
Recommended? Yes

Comments: After tough use on hard trails my first one started jumping out of low range. Now my second one has developed a clunk in low range. The clunk happens when you start up a hill then again as you start down the other side letting the engine slow you down.

Price: $100.00
Pros: i love the options, 2wd, part time 4, full time 4, and 4 low. the part time 4 works wonderfully! never would even know till it grabs!
Cons: kind of conflicting to my last statement BUT... my display has an option to light up for part time 4, but doesn't, might just be that i missed something.. but thats all...
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The new process gear 242 transfer case (select trac) is my favorite of the 3 of my options BY FAR! I love the options that it offers, and the durability FAR surpasses the 249, the 231 is also a great transfer case but it doesn't have as many options.
the downsides to the NP242.. there aren't many but... :
the gear shifting is tight, and you MUST reverse about a foot sometimes to ensure that your selection has taken effect. also when in "part time 4" it tends to vibrate, not all the time, but none the less...
otherwise, perfect!!! definitely an upgrade from the stock NP249...

Price: $400.00
Pros: Full-time 4X4
Cons: Sometimes doesn't like to come out of 4X4
Recommended? Yes

Comments: If the case would always shift out of 4X4 into 2WD without binding I would consider this transfer case to be excellent.
