It depends on what year XJ the axle is coming from.
This is taken from the XJ FAQ:
Dana 35: XJ (most 84-91, all w/ABS post-91)
Chrysler 8.25": XJ rear, non-ABS post-91
Dana44: Some 1987-89 XJ Cherokee rear (most common in 1987 w/towing package, very rare in later models)
If it's an XJ with the Dana 44, then I would says it's worth it. Not too familiar with the Crysler 8.25" so can't help you there.
