You will need to re-drill the t-case mounting holes if you use a Cherokee transmission. Same transmission as the wrangler ax-15, but holes are in a different position. I think 10* off.

Not sure on the Cherokee but I am of the understanding that the output shaft on the Wrangler AX15 with a 4 cyl has 21 splines while the 6 cyl came with 23. Good luck, Dave

You can also use the NV3550 5sp from later model TJ's and Libertys, but I would guess there would also be some minor modifications, that I'm not completely up on... but it is do-able.

I know the transfer case off a cherokee is clocked differently, so you have widen the hole in the skid plate/cross member of the YJ. I know, I did it.....Thats all I know guys...
