Re: NP242 Transfer Case Tech

And for visual sake, here is a side by side of a 242 compared to a 231. I was skeptical that the 242 was THAT much bigger until I saw them side by side

Re: NP242 Transfer Case Tech

I'm me again sorry. I was trying to order the standard chain HV-028 but this site but gave birth to a doubt, because it says that the HV-028 is not compatible with NP242ECE like mine that mount a HV-061 chain. The Indian had written that it was possible to put the HV-028 standard time do you think I should do? Thanks again for patience and my best regards.

Re: NP242 Transfer Case Tech

It will fit, the chains are interchangeable. It is not correct for your application so they will say it does not fit. But you can install it without any issues.

Re: NP242 Transfer Case Tech

This is the most useful thread I've seen on the 242. Thank you.
After weeks of reading through forum posts (some over 50 pages!), I still don't have an answer to a basic question, but I feel like the author of this thread would know.

You will sometimes find people saying the V8-WJ version 242HD (long input shaft, 32 spline output yada yada) "ONLY" came in 02-03 WJ's with a V-8. Some of us know this is not true. Some of us also know that the ID tags have said many different things, and not always "HD", yet they still have the 32-spline long tailcone.
I bought a "242 WJ", from a 2000 V-8 WJ (seen with my own eyes). It has all the characteristics of a v-8 WJ HD version. The only noticeable difference in the front output CV flange, instead of later yoke versions (obviously easily changed, as is common on the 247).

My question for someone more knowledgable is why are people saying "only" found in an 02-03? Is this earlier HD, 32 spline version different in any other way (that makes a performance difference) besides the front driveshaft yoke?
As in, perhaps it's not a 1.25" chain? perhaps something different?
Again, I don't care about different front yokes, different electrical connectors, or speedos; I've searched for a month to no avail why people say ONLY from an 02-03, so I'm trying to figure out if this "242 WJ" case from a 2000 (manufactured 11/23/1999) is inferior to the 02-03's in any structural/internal way?

Re: NP242 Transfer Case Tech

I might of missed it reading through this, but what's the difference between the European(police package) and standard chain?

Re: NP242 Transfer Case Tech

Saved this thread to my favorites. I'm on the hunt for a 91-95 242 to swap in place of my slowing dying 231, lots of good info in here.

Re: NP242 Transfer Case Tech

I've located a 98 ZJ with a 242 behind a 4.0L. Is swapping into my 95 XJ an option? If I'm reading the tech pages early in this thread right it should have a slip yoke rear like a 97+ XJ. Are the inputs the same? I currently have the shifter pieces I need to do the swap just need the transfercase itself. My 95 is 4.0L/AW4/NP231 currently. Just rebuilt the NP231 two weeks ago because I gave up hope finding a 242 locally.
