2004 WJ 242hd swap/where is wire harness?

One and all,
I just picked up my 242hd for my 2004 WJ. In the next few weeks I will be getting the rear output shaft out to Tom Woods for a SYE. I already have the shifter assembly out of the donor vehicle. All I need now is the 2-pin wire harness mopar number 56041899AB. I started looking for the connector on my factory harness to plug this jumper into and can't seem to find it.

So the question is, since the 242hd was not available on the '04 model, does that mean the connector is not to be found? HAs anyone found the connectors location on a 2004 WJ V-8? I sure hope so. I know it is only cosmetic but I want this to look and feel factory.

On a separate note, I am contemplating installing a new Borge Warner Morse chain since the case will be apart. From my research, HV-063 is the correct part number for this chain, can anyone confirm? Thanks in advance.
Kevin

From what I can tell it was only on the 2002 and earlier models. My 2002 with the factory 242HD has the pigtail as part of the main harness. My other 247 with a NV247 did not have the pinout. I pulled the wiring harness all the way up to the PCM and the pinout for the wire was not there. I had to custom run the wiring from the PCM myself. 2003 and 2004 models also do not have the pigtail connector in the parts fiche that I can see.

Thanks for the reply. So if it isn't there, bummer. Do you happen to have any dirrections or photos of running the wires from the PCM? I wonder if my PCM and gauge cluster has the lights and such, just no wireing pigtail? Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks again.

OK so this is weird, I looked through the Chrysler Techincal Service Manual 2004 WJ edition, and it has the complete tear down for the 242LD and 242HD as well as the wire harness description and picture for the indicator light. I am going to go look again this evening for that plug. It wouldn't suprise me though if the service manual was just a cut-and-paste carryover from the previous year. Heck it still shows the Rezeppa joint yolk which as I understand it was gone by 2004. Anyway, still weird.
