(Warning Noobie) Axle question

Hello all,
I just bought my brothers 00 4.0 jeep Cherokee. I got a very good deal on it because he had a tire blow and it screwed up the front axel and lost oil pressure. First off, I have never owned a jeep before, I come form the tuner scene. I got the oil pressure worked out, when the tire blew it put the up control arm bolt through the oil pan which in turn broke the oil pump. Now here is my question. The mounts for the lower control arm is pretty messed up instead of re-welding the bracket i just wanna get a new front axle. What all years and models well be a direct swap? Like i said it a 2000 and im a complete noob .
Thanks in advance!

Any Cherokee axle will "fit". For reasons that you should research, some years and axle features are less desirable to have. Stop by the Cherokee section of the Forum and read some of the older threads, there is tons of good info, pointers on maintenance, and deatils about repairs and modifications.

You will probably want to find a donor Cherokee that was made between 1990 and 2001. Make sure the ring and pinion gear ratio in the new axle is the same as the axle you are replacing.

If you are planing on lifting the Cherokee try to avoid getting a 2000 or 2001 front axle.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
