Yes. At stock ride height the high-pinion Cherokee axle may have some intereference issues.

I don't understand why you are having trouble finding an axle from a Grand Cherokee. They should be a dime a dozen.

what years of HP D30's will work for ZJ? My ABS module is already broken but I'd still like to know all years that have ABS vs not?

I've been able to find some 96 XJ with HP D30 and ABS, mostly on limited models I'd say (leather seats)
However I've had problems with driveshaft rubbing against tranny lines on big bumps (no lift on my rig).
You can also swap in the knuckles, even if the axe doesn't have ABS, I believe knuckles and bolt-on ABS wire holders are the only differences.

Good point..

You want 91+ XJ D30 knuckles to get the 1 piece style. Older XJ knuckles are different with having a bolt on caliper mount. By using the newer style you'll be able to reuse the ZJ unit bearings and brake assemblies if needed.
