97 Grand Cherokee (assume 4.0l) = 42RE
98 Cherokee = AW4 trans

Sorry , these are different . They will bolt up but the electronics are different . Won't work .

Check out car-part.com

Shows all parts from many, many junkyards/scrapyards/salvage yards across the nation. Just look up what you need, and it'll give you a list of everyone within however many miles you choose, that has one.

EDIT:

Sorry, just realized your from AUS, so that may not work...
