High Pinion D30 question

Just wondering if the Grand Cheorkees came with a high pinion D30 up front and figured I'd ask the experts in the ZJ/WJ forum.

I found a 1997 Grand Cheorkee front axle for cheap in my area and am wondering if its high pinion or not.

I have a 2004 Wrangler and am looking to upgrade the low pinion D30 I have up front. I'm looking to put in an ARB in it as well. I know the gears are reverse cut so I'll have to get new ones.
