    Default 242 to 231 swap

    i finally did the swap and got the sye in and driveshaft. my issue is with the shift lever. i got the boost werks simple 231 kit. My question is does the shift handle from a 242 equipped xj have a longer throw. i know the 242 tcase does. the other is do i need the shift gate and the brass part the bolts to the floor? would that make the lever not move i mean i cant get it to move without snapping the lever off.

    You want to get the 231 shifter itself. It has a different pattern in it that matches your new shifting requirememts

    It is really the base and the slot the lever goes through. It is easier just to get the whole thing and bolt it in
