Rockauto may have it. You will need specify if it has cruise control or not. Also, look at the xj up to 90, since they are the same as the MJ.

get one for a 2wd cherokee, if you can't find one, we will have to change the one on the sons truck since its going 4x4.

Yes, up to 90 used the cable. 91+ went to electronic speedos.

Since you don't have cruise, you only need the one piece cable.

Rockauto lists them. However, they describe cable for automatics. I dont know the diff between auto and stick.

We jsut changed the tranny and added a tranfer case to the sons 88 Comanche and I used the stock cable. It didn't have anything extra but it reached and works.
the Tranny and xfer case came from a 91 XJ. But both was 5 speeds.

The diff in length is 2wd to 4wd. Since you indicated you have 2wd, you can get the 77".

If you plan to go 4wd, get the longer cable.
