    I just got a 95 grand cherokee limited w/ quad trac case. Is there a way to change the case so I can have two wheel drive. Any input is appreciated.

    easy swap all you need is a pre 96 231j or 242j with a 23 spline input shaft. i have a 231 in mine now but will be swapping a 242 back into it in a few weeks.

    Will that 231 end up in the classified section?

    late 94 is when it changed to 23 spline.
    he can also use a 96+ but he will need a 96+zj rear driveshaft.

    Actually, 91 and newer 6 cyls are 23 spline. Assuming the input shaft protrusion length is correct, any 91 and up, 6 cyl 231 will work. 4 cylinder 231's are 21 spline if behind a 5 speed, 23 if behind an auto.

    All of this just to confuse the OP a bit more...

    i have a 95 orvis edition, i wanna do the same thing. Any difference with the v8 instead of the 4cyl? i can just pick up a 242 older then 95 and it should be the same?

    The 231 is a part time only case, the 242 is a full time or part time case. Basically the 242 has a differential in it for full time use, allowing different rpm's to the front and back axle.
