Yes, it's a direct swap. I have the NV242 if you need if you're interested.

Ok, so to add on to this... I have a 2000 Durango 5.9L with 4wd all the time. Then the 4hi-4Lo. I want to change the transfer case out to have the standard 2wd-4hi-4lo. The one I have in my D now is a NV244, correct? And the one that I would want/need is a NV233? Please correct me if I am wrong. Also, will the 2wd-4hi-4lo transfer case in a 2000 durango 5.2L work on my 5.9L? Is there any major things that I would need to know about before diving into changing the two transfer cases? Any factual information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

You have the NV242, and the one you want is a NV231. The transfer cases you listed would be correct if your Durango was a 2001+.

Yes, a transfer case from a 2000 5.2L Durango would work, but it's highly unlikely that you will find one, as the 5.2L was replaced by the 4.7L in 2000.

I have the NP231HD in mine. Just curious, why do you want to change the transfer case?

Imagine your Durango with AWD and you'll see why.

No thanks, I am quite happy with the one I have. I could use some lower gears though.

But that will have to wait until I absorb my engine purchase. I have to stop spending money.

I didn't mind the FT on the street, but was pointless for me offroad. It didn't allow me to challenge my truck offroad in 2wd, and that was a big issue for me since I got a locker shortly after the transfer case swap.
