88 YJ t case swap

Have a quick question for the experienced jeepers here.. I have an 88 YJ automatic with a NP 231 t case that's starting to make some noise. I found a tcase from a friend of a friend he "said" came out of a YJ.. I went today and bought it for 50 bucks. The tag was all covered in grim and dirt I scratch the surface enough with my finger nail to see it said 231 on it. Upon closer inspection at home it say 231HD on it. I was wondering if this is still a direct swap and if it was a better/worse tcase that what I have? Any help would be appreciated!

additional info.. I cleaned tag alittle better and it actually says 231D-HD.. if that makes a difference?

Re: 88 YJ t case swap

I'll start with possibly the obvious. HD is the Heavy Duty version of the CommandTrac.

I'll add that the 231D is the Dodge version and the 231J is the Jeep version(????).
