Swapping Transfer Cases

Now I've read a lot about people swapping out Command-Trac to Selec-Trac on their KJs, but I was wondering if it'd be possible to do so on the KK. I believe the transfer case I have on my 2012 KK is the MP1522 (Command-Trac II), but I want to go to the MP3022 (Selec-Trac II).

The rationale is my Jeep is a pavement pounder, so the 4x4 lock is extremely incovenient, as I have to continously switch in and out of 4x4 lock going around corners or going through small patches of slippery surface. I know the 4x4 lock gives much more traction than 4x4 auto, but I'd prefer to have a full-time 4x4 system that I can use in any condition, like rain or even dry pavement.

Just a thought....and I may very well be way way off but.....would it be more cost effective to just trade back in yours and get one with the select trac? Especially with the insane incentives and 0% financing they have been offering?

I would have to assume it would run you a couple grand to make the switch anyways.

^^^ Agreed. Honestly, sounds like a little more research before purchase would have been the way to go.
