This is another one of those deals like my hockey pucks last week. Whoever says they can do the job in 2 hours can bite my greasy fingernails!
I don't doubt it can be done in that amount of time...BUT, by someone who probably (1) has done it before, (2) has a hoist to put the vehicle in the air, (3) has a good, full set of tools.
Whereas, I (1) have never done this before, (2) am doing it laying on my back with the Jeep on jackstands, (3) have a piece-meal, mix-n-match, incomplete set of tools
At any rate, the old one is out. Looks like I lucked out, the input shafts match!
What doesn't match is the 4wd switch. The 249 has a 4-pin, the 231 a 2-pin. Are they interchangeable?
