As long as the cherokee axle doesnt have the disconnect system on it you should be fine, and from what I know and have read many TJ owners like this upgrade as its better for them since the Cherokee axle is a High Pinion axle whereas the stock TJ axle is Low Pinion. So yes, if there is no disconnect on the axle you should be fine.

Oh yeah might wanna check on the gear ratio, unless you plan on re-gearing both at the same time.
