249 to 242 transfer case swap

Installing 242 transfer case


How to install a 242 transfer case in a Jeep Grand Cheorkee. Here are the steps I went through to install the rebuilt 242 transfer case with the swapped input shaft from a 249 transfer case. We start by placing the 242 transfer case on a jack to lift it into place. The transfer case weighs close to 90 pounds, so it’s a good idea to have a buddy help you lift it into place. Once you have it positioned and the input shaft engaging the transmission, it’s just a matter of placing a few of the transfer case mounting bolts to hold it in place. Some of these transfer case mounting bolts can be very difficult to reach. I cover how I accessed them better in this video: How to remove transfer case.

Once it’s in position, I show attaching the speed sensor, shift indicator, vent, and other parts necessary for the transfer case swap.
