Quick Skid Plate question

I need a new transmission and transfer skid plate for my 93 YJ, its a 2.5 and I was just wondering will any 87-95 work? Or is there a difference between a 4.0 and a 2.5?
Thank You

The distance for tans mount is different for 2.5 vs. 4.0. It can be installed and redrilled and doesn't compromise the skid at all.

89YJ 2.5L TBI, AX-5, NP231 SYE, Ford 8.8, Yukon Grizzly, Tom Woods Shaft, 33" BFG T/As, 4" lift, Warn VR10000s.

I've wondered that myself, mostly just because there's a second set of holes on my skid.

I just put a factory skid on my 91 YJ w/2.5 & AX5 that came off my 89 YJ w/4.2 & AX15. Yes, the mounts are in different locations, but there are holes for both. I believe any skid will do, you do not have to look for 4banger skids only.
