That should work fine. I'm using an ax15 from a 95 XJ (just had to change clocking).
If you're doing your clutch, do not have the flywheel re-surfaced. The oem flywheel is not flat.
If you can afford it, I'd recommend putting in a b&m short shifter. I know it's not a race car, but it makes the shifts so much more precise. I think mine improves it enough so that if I were to get another jeep, that's probably the very first thing I'd order.
Edit: if the trans is from an XJ, the clocking on the trans, for the transfer case will need to be changed (re-drilled)
