HP Dana 30 in a TJ.

I read somewhere online once that an HP 30 from an (96) XJ is a direct bolt-in swap for my (97) TJ front axle.

Is that true?

Thanks.

That is correct. 96-99 XJ fronts are the preferred years. Don't forget that gear ratio will need to match your rear though.

Yeah, anyone want to buy a brand new, never used set of 4.88's for the stock TJ D30? I bought them a while back to regear the front to match the back, but now I have the afore mentioned HP D30 and they wont work in it. Guess I'm gonna go with the HP 30 now.
