Gauge Cluster Changes

I noticed in my Brother's 97 Sahara that his gauge cluster has all numbers on the gauges (Specifically the Oil Pressure, but all of the gauges), but in the 04 and 06 Sports I have looked at they have just a H and L on that gauge. The Water Temp and other gauges still have proper indicators.

Was this a change in clusters at a certain year or in trim levels? What year did it happen? Is it possible to swap them?

I searched and found nothing.

Just curious -- nice to have numbers I suppose...

It's not worth it for numbers, your gauges still act the same as his.

The change happened in 2001 I believe, or atleast when the Cherokee was discontinued.

Thanks guys.

I guess the next question is, when this changed did the accuracy also change? Would they now be more of dummy gauges than actual gauges or was it just the face that changed?

If you're thinking of changing to the new cluster, I dont' think you can. There's differences in the engine and the rest of the vehicle - the cluster has a lot electronics in it - it's not just a gauge panel.
Crappy pic but here's what the back side looks like:
