Transfer case 247 to 242hd 4.7L
 
This is my first post and I am hoping to get some help. Recently picked up a 2002 Overland and have started to gather parts to do a 247 to 242 transfer case conversion. I have aquired a 242J case and rear drive shaft from a 2002 wj with a 4.7 with 99K as documented from LKQ.

So here is the question. When I picked up the transfer case from LKQ it was on a pallet and tied down. Upon driving home it shifted on the pallet and fluid (red and I assume it to be ATF+4) started leaking out the tail shaft cone. Is this normal or should I be worried and return it to LKQ?

BTW...... I paid $250 for the the 242 and $115 for the rear drive shaft.

This is normal. The drive shaft will form the sealing with the lip seal which is mounted in the case. ATF+4 is used in this T-case.

You will most probably change the T-case fluid after installation, but at least be sure to check the fluid level.

Fluid change with ATF+4 is part of the plan as well as new spicer u-joints on the donor drive shaft.
