Help Front End Swap

I have a 98 Jeep grand Cherokee with a 5.2 V8. The front end has 3.73 gears. Can I use the front end from a 94 jeep grand cherokee with a V6 engine? I need the entire front end swapped out.
Thanks

depends on the gearing. Needs to match yours. Several factors here, including t-case.

you're best sticking with 96-98 v8 or i6 with tow package. but best to stick to the v8.
the early ones(93-95) have a longer pinion and will make your drive shaft too long to fit back in.
