At long last, a Slip Yoke Eliminator Kit is available for the NP242 transfer case used in XJ Cherokees and ZJ Grand Cherokees! Will Not work on a WJ Grand Cherokee. This Heavy Duty Slip Yoke Eliminator kit fits Jeep NP242J transfer case ONLY, which has a full-time four-wheel drive mode in addition to part-time Hi and Lo range. The transfer case can be identified by a round metal tag on the back of the transfer case right in the center. Be sure you properly identify which transfer case you have before ordering.
THIS SYE KIT DOES NOT FIT THE NP231 TRANSFER CASE. The NP231 SYE can be found HERE.
This kit features a new 1 3/8”-32 spline rear output shaft, heat-treated aluminum alloy tail housing, 1310 c.v. yoke (other styles of yokes available), bearings, fastening hardware, and detailed instructions.
Introduced in 1988, the Jeep NP242 is a transfer case with both full- and part-time Hi ranges as well as part-time Lo range. It was an optional transfer case used in 1988-2001 XJ Cherokees as well as 93-98 ZJ Grand Cherokees. It is chain driven with a 2.72:1 low range, and it’s reliable even with more than stock horsepower applied.
We recommend installing an SYE kit on XJs and ZJs when adding 3 inches or more of lift.
