First year for the 4.0 crank girdle?

I have a 95, and just bought a reman 4.0 and it has no girdle or studs to allow the install of one. I've yet to tear down my old motor, but wanted to know before i do. I've tried searching all places, but there is a whole lot of conflicting info out there...

Does anyone know when they started using the girdle? Best I can tell they started when the TJ redesign came out, but there is plenty of wrong info and guesses out there. I just happened to find two sources that agreed on the TJ introduction.

Thanks

I bought a 4.0 marked as a 95, and it did not have it either.

From '96, 4.0L engines used a main bearing girdle for more overall strength. This is something that can be added to any earlier 4.0L by replacing the main bearing cap bolts and getting the girdle...

Thanks for your help. I didn't think they came on 95's, but wanted to be sure.

Wish me luck, I'm transferring all my accessories today and installing tomorrow!
