The bumper mounting wasn't affected by the 96 to 97 changes, but the lower area of the hatch got wider. So in the case of a rear bumper like Warn's which comes up beside the bottom of the hatch you could put the late model bumper on an early model XJ, but couldn't put the early model bumper on a late model XJ.
For bumpers that don't snug up around the bottom of the hatch, they'll swap either way.
