XJ trailer hitch on a ZJ?

Will an XJ (cherokee) trailer hitch fit on a ZJ? theres a bunch of XJs with hitches in the JY near me, all the ZJs in the yard dont have hitches.

You could unbolt one and try to bolt it on to a ZJ

Sound advice, but consider that those bolts can be a ROYAL PITA to get out.

EDIT: looked at your location, probably not as sucky as up here to accomplish.

You're right - rust is rarely an issue here. Our problems usually centre around perished rubber components and over heating engines/transmissions.

Here's one for a XJ for sale on eBay, shows that it will not fit a ZJ, I'm guessing that ZJ's are wider.

Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

It won't fit. I already tried it. The ZJ rails are wider and the bolt holes are spaced a little different.
