First off, this is my first post. I'm new to this forum thing.
Secondly, thank you in advance for any responses i get!

Ok, so..

I purchased a 1997 Jeep ZJ Laredo with 318.
Obviously it has the NP249 :mad: why, chrysler? why?

anyways,
i want to drop it and install the NP231 tcase.
I have figured out this far that they will have the same input spline count.
so my question is. does anyone know about lengths and measurments?
If i grab a 231 out of a 2000 XJ at my local yard, Can i simply swap the tcase and shift linkage, and be able to install the drive shafts out of the xj also?

I can't find any threads or videos about it on the net anywhere..

all i hear about is switching the input shaft?
but if the 231 from a 2000xj has the same spline count and exposed length (.840) as my 97 zj, i should be able to just throw it in, change the linkage and use the drive shafts from the xj right???

thanks again..

that thread is good, but is not all i need to know.
i need to know if everything should be a direct swap.
same input shaft spine count and length (23/.840)
will the driveshafts from the xj swap directly into my zj.
2000xj, 1997zj.

thank you.
