91-95 for the 4.0 HO is what I would recommend.

the 89 90 have renix injection and 91 and newer use crysler injection which is much better and more fool proof. plus more horse power. i used a 90 and am now switching to a 91 injection system. my motor is about a 97 so i'll just swap the top end stuff and computor

These are good. But if you getting whole thing look for even newer. 95 and up did not have the CAD system so you could steal the axle shafts from it. If you gonna use the auto trans( I would_) you gotta do a little work to Clock it right but I love the auto in them.
