Mostly just the length of the arms.

You think this is bad go over to Cherokee Forum. Although since they got bought out the moderator's aren't allowed to do much over there anymore. Some of the stupidest advice I've ever seen on off road forums goes on over there and like everyone that knew what they were talking about has left lol

You are ditching a 97 for a 96 or older?

You lose an airbag, ergonomics, a better steering wheel for... just about the same engine (and wiring) and an outdated body and door styling?

You smoka da crack?

I'd take a 96 over a 97. I hate the exterior on the new body style, the interior is more cramped, and you still get ODBII with a 96. And I like my giant bus driver steering wheel damn it.

I'm with motorcharge on the steering wheel thing. I liked the 88s steering wheel. I'd swap my 98 for one in a heartbeat.
