Front or rear axle? What gear ratio do you have? Those numbers you posted mean nothing to most of us

They are both 3.55s. The ZJ has a D30LP(Low Pinion), and the XJ has a D30HP(High Pinion).

IIRC they are interchangeable, not sure if the drive shafts are the same length though.

Check the ZJ FAQ section.
