    Actually, my Jeep and your Jeep are virtuallly the same. you have the same AX4 transmission that I do with a slightly more agressive control computer. You have the same engine that I do, but with better intake runners and a COP (not police, but coil on plug) ignition whereas I have the old cap and rotor setup. you have larger and stronger front hubs than I do. You have and Chrysler 8.5 rear axle and a DANA 30 front, I have a DANA 35 rear(weaker than the 8.5) and a DANA 30 front. The only other differences that I could find are that you have a different interior and slightly more rounded body panels (which still do interchange between the years). The only reason that I know all the interchange stuff is because a friend has a 2000 cherokee sitting in my driveway right now. So have fun and rest easy with the low mileage-ness of your Jeep.
