91 -97 Tcase Swap or motor swap

Sorry I forgot so I figured I would throw this one out to you all.

This can go two different ways, I found a 91 4wd with a bad motor I have a 97 4wd with a bad TC, So either I am thinking of swapping the TC out of the 91 and putting it in the 97 OR putting the 97 motor in the 91?

Both are automatics

Any ideas?

Its a cherokee or grand cherokee? There was no GC in 91 so would would have a different vehicle. This is all very confusing so ill say this.

Its a lot easier to swap a TC then it is to swap a motor and if you are taking a I6 from a XJ to ZJ you are going to have to change everything over the OBDII

Sorry the 91 is a Cherokee limited 4x & the 97 is a GC limited 4x.

Basically I was wondering what TC was in the 91 Cherokee's, and if it was "compatible" for a swap with a 97 GC .?

If it were to go motor swap from the 97 to the 91- I would make it a "toy" so it would basically just have to run lol.

There is a lot of info on this so do some seraching also check the FAQ.

The easy answer is yes you can swap the XJ TC into the ZJ.

You will most likely have to swap input shafts in the TC though.

It is a I6 4.0

EDIT- thanks for the info but I just ran into town and seeing that gas is now $3.85 a gal I think I will hold off on any "toys", this is getting really stupid.

Thanks again
