Stick to 1992-1994 to assure the best possible compatibility of all parts
with your '94.
Specific parts just depend on what exactly you're talking about... external body panels (front clip, fenders, hood, doors, etc) will be the same from 1987-1996. And probably 1984-1986 would work as well. The main physical change between 1986 and 1987 was the firewall being modified to fit the then-new 4.0L I6.
Most interior trim will be the same from 1984-1996, with minor differences in color, fabric, etc, through the years. Main differences appearance-wise between the 1995/1996 XJs and prior years is that 1995/1996 got a driver's side air bag and Chrysler steering column (vs the old GM steering column that had been used up until then). 1996 was the first year for the ODBII system, so there's going to be some electrical differences starting then as well.
If you can provide specifics on what you've got to work on on your 1994, someone will be able to give you the details on what will work for you.
