well im starting to tear my t-case down to make sure everything inside is good when i saw a connector on the 242 that im not seeing on the 247 (shown in pic) do i leave this alone? didnt see anything mentioned about it in your write up..thanks again for the help
Thats the plug for the 4wd light to come up on the dash...I didn't bother doing it on mine, you would need to buy the plug and then trace the propper wires to the transmission wire harness...more trouble thats its worth IMO. Doesn't do anything put activate the light on the dash.
Quick question about this , I am doing either the 242 or 231 swap soon . I have the 4.7 limited but I will do a SYE kit , which TC is better for this . I dont need full time 4wd , and would anyone have any idea on the length Ds I would need with the 4in Iro LA kit ? Also is the 231 just a bolt in also ?
The rear driveshaft needs to be front a WJ with a 242HD in it since the tail cone is longer on the 242HD. The driveshaft should be shorter than your stock one.
If you can't find one, you can always have a driveline shop cut yours down to length and balance it.
The front driveshaft is the same length.
One last question. My current front shaft uses cv type joints rather than u-joints. Will I need to get new yokes if I purchase a u-joint type front shaft? Pretty basic questions I'm sure, but I'm not well versed on 4x4s yet.
