What installing none jeep parts in a Cherokee, that's blasphemy! why you will be condemned to the seven corners of........<remembers what Jeep stands for "Jeep Everyone Else’s Parts" and that his XJ has a Aisin AW4>

Hmm..... Never mind.

You are making a wise choice! :) I've been through replacing a 2.8 with a 4.0L in an 86 MJ. Had a 96 cherokee for the parts rig. Basically ended up taking everything but the front fenders & front axle assy and putting in to the 86. Like John said, it's a bitch, start with a 87 or up. The other guy I was dealing with said no sweat.... LOL yaaa....... will never do that again! I just about put either a small block or a 318 in it intead. Should have done that instead. Another friend went through putting 98 running gear in an 89xj. He isn't ever going through that again either. :) He believes in them small blocks now too! :)
