Grand Cherokee transter case cross member

Can anyone tell me if a transfer case cross member out of a 96 or 98 grand cherokee will work in my 1995 grand cherokee. Called the dealership and they said the the 96 and 98 are the same part number but the 95 is a different part number. Does anybody know if it will still work in my 95 or are the parts that much different?

I know the transmission mount bolts up differently on the 96+. Not sure if the newer trans mount will bolt up to the 95.

They are different. Even with aftermarket like IRO you have to specify year so you get the right mounting pattern.

Damn! Not what I wanted to hear. Guess the search continues. Called 15 local slavage yards and found cross members for 96, 97 and 98 but nothing for a 95. Looks like I might be stuck trying to fix my old one. Or maybe I'l get lucky and find someone parting one out.

This is why I'm looking for a new cross member. Aftermath of getting stuck on a stump.

i would search the junkyards for a tcase skid and its matching crossmember. the ones that came with skids had nutserts for it in the corssmember, ones that didnt have the skid just have holes. youd have to put nuts on the other side which is a PITA. ask me how i know lol

96+ crossmembers support a better transmission mount the old ZJs. It will work, but you need bracketry and bolts from the 96+ for the transmission mount plus a newer style trans mount. If you are doing JY, you should find everything easily. I actually did the upgrade on my 94, using Mopar parts.
