I've never run a 249...

But I have put a 242 behind the NSG370 (6speed) in a Jeep. Plug & play except for a tiny bit of grinder massaging on the shift cable bracket.

My advice... don't. The 249 is a hunk of garbage with the viscous coupler. Theres a reason most people with awd zj grand cherokees swap in a 242 or 231. If you want the ability to select awd, go with a 242 t case. It's got 2wd, 4 hi, 4 low and full time awd.

I’ve got a 242 but gotta go wth an ax5 instead of the 15. Too much of a pain to mate an ax15 to a 2.5 so I’m gonna have to somehow mate the 242 to the ax5.

Change the spud in the 242 or is there an adapter for it?

Also, is there a heavier fly-wheel suggestion to consider while I’ve got the tranny separated from the 2.5?

I remember the 4 cylinder guys saying the heavier flywheel gives it a “feels like” lower torque.

TIA
