242 transfer case swap to a 247

Okay, so I want to do a 242 transfer case swap because my 247 is shot.
I need to know about the drive shafts. Are the drive shafts the same length front and rear on the 242 and the 247?
The 242 in from a 1999 WJ and mine is also a 1999 WJ.
The 242 is out of a 4.0L and mine is a 4.7L
Will the input shaft be the same? If not can I swap them?

Thanks

You need the rear shaft that came with the transfer case.

Front drive shaft is the same, rear will need to be swapped to the same shaft that came out of your 242 donor jeep. The input shaft will also need to be swapped out.
