1997 4.0L oil pan same as 2002 4.0L?

I need a new oil pan. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/my...p-pics-838977/

They list some online that are cheap for a 1997 but not a 2002. Is it the same?

Should be identical.

BTT not that I don't believe Jerry or my own research but more reassurance couldn't hurt

The 1997 oil pan is a: 53020833
The 2002 oil pan is a: 53010340

According to the Omix-Ada site the pans are interchangeable.

Interchangable but different part numbers? I don't understand. Also, I looked on Autozone's website and all the different brands of oil pans they have are different part number between 1997-2002.

Don't make this harder than it is, it's an oil pan. You were given a p/n for a 2002 oil pan, what more do you need?

Need to know if the $50 one for a 1997 will work with mine since it's 66% of the price of one for a 2002! And $25 extra means a lot to a guy like me if the $50 pan fits.

If it were me, I'd order the one for a '97 because as already said above, it should be identical. The 4.0L block hasn't changed shape.

It could just be that Jeep went to a different parts vendor over the years, hence changing the number but not the actual part.
