An oil filter may fit several different engines. Use the oil filter cross reference at this link - http://www.framcatalog.com/Application.aspx?b=F - to look up the proper filter for your 4.0 L XJ Cherokee engine.

Try posting a picture of your engine to see if you have the 4.0L.

Pictures are not necessary, because any 6 cylinder XJ Cherokee built between 1987 and 2001 has the same in-line 4.0 L Jeep engine. If the Jeep has a 3.7 L engine, it is not an 1984-2001 XJ Cherokee.

Fram is junk. Don't use them.

Get a 1085 from Napa or an 090 Mopar from Walmart.
