NP231 Compatibility for 5-Speed Tranny

I got a 01' 5 speed Cherokee I am in the process of converting into a 4x4. The 2001 Cherokee will have a nv3550 transmission put into it for the conversion.

I understand what I need and what parts are compatible for everything but the transfer case. Can I get the transfer case out of any Jeep Cherokee Transmission with a 23 spline output? Or is there a difference in input shaft lengths for autos and manual transmissions for the transfer case? Must I find a transfer case that has come out of a manual transmission? Or does it not matter? If so, can the manual transmission be the aw-15 or nv3550, or must it be out of a nv3500 5 speed?

Thanks for the help.

I don't have specific experience for your case, but I looked this up
in the parts catalogs for 97-99 and 2001 XJs.

The input gear part number for the 4.0 for 1997-2001 is 4798-113,
whether with the automatic or with the AX15 or the NV3550.

The 2.5 gas engine and the 2.5td use other p/ns.

Yup, you're right. I should have looked at part numbers. Thanks! Makes looking for a transfer case a lot easier.
