93 Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee trans info

I have a 93 Cherokee with a 4.0L engine and auto trans with quadra-trac
(42RE trans?)

I have an option to pick up a 93 Grand Cherokee with a 4.0L engine auto trans with AWD, with a bad trans.

I searched and found some info but I am still unsure. Can I swap the trans from my Cherokee to the Grand Cherokee and what sort of road blocks may I run into?

Any links to threads or just outright answers would be appreciated. Thanks in advance everyone.

Your Cherokee has an AW4, not 42RE. If the Grand Cherokee is a very early 93, it may have the AW4 as well. If not, it will have the 42RE.

If they are both AW4's, the swap would be easy and straight forward. If the ZJ has a 42RE, it's possible, but it takes quite a bit of work.

Want to swap an NP242 or NP231 into your ZJ? Here's how:

Thanks for your response and excuse my confusion, But I thought the AW4 was a full time 4wd trans/TC? My Cherokee has the option of 2wd 4hi N 4lo. The Grand Cherokee does not have this option

No. The Aisin-Warner AW-4 is a transmission. The NP249 is the full time transfer case in ZJ's.
