The 242HD is stronger than the 231. The standard 242 is not as strong as the 231. wjjeeps.com has the specs.

I need some help guys. I just put my 242j into my 03 v8 grand and everything went well and bolted right up except for the linkage. I replaced the shifter bezel, moved the linkage down to the lower hole in the bracket just as all the write ups say. After all is said and done the shift bezel and linkage do not line up. Please help!

There is an adjustment at the shift assembly that may need adjusting to make the shifter and the 242 line up.

Did you change the linkage arm on the TC or swap it?

Did the 242 replacement a couple of months ago. I was testing it last night and I find the motor revs higher in full time 4. At 60 mph, in 2 wheel it revs at 1600, in 4 full time it revs at 2000. Is this normal? 2004 grand overland, V8HO, 242. 265/65/17.

in quadradrive/full time 4wd its around 2000, but at 70mph.. (with the 545rfe trans software) would make sense since it now has to drive twice as many wheels as 2wd.. but thats just a guess
