An XJ is a Cherokee, a TJ is a Wrangler.

NO, there is enough of a difference between the YJ and TJ that the tops do not match up properly.

A Grand Cherokee is a WJ Cherokee is a XJ Wrangler is TJ

It depends on the year, but equal years should match up, the cherokee used the same bolt pattern as the YJ and TJ jeep Wranglers

It is either a Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, or Wrangler. The model codes are xj, wj, and tj.

Not much difference between the two, the year between them pretty much equals the difference out. If there is a difference in motors it may make a difference but I would say they are even.

Bolt on ? No. Welding and fabricating would be required.

No because the Jeep Wranglers bolt pattern is 5" and your Cherokee is 4.5". However if you find YJ or TJ rims they will fit on a cherokee. First, YJ's and TJ's are Wranglers. YJ Wranglers were made from 1987-1995 and TJ Wranglers were made from 1997-2006. The rims from these will fit a Cherokee as the bolt patterns are the same. However the rims from a 2007 and newer JK Wranglers will not fit.

They are in a way the same thing. The Jeep "SPORT" is a trim package of the jeep wrangler. A Jeep "TJ" Is the frame type TJ's were made from 97(produced in 96) until 2006 when they were replaced by the jeep JK. The wrangler before 1997 was the jeep YJ. Other trim packages in the 97 to 06 years where the SE, Sport, Sahara, Rubricon.

All TJ models should be compatible.

A regular Jeep TJ GVW is 4450 stock..

Any Cherokee, YJ or TJ model wrangler will work

Nothing really, some top fit differences, some mirror changes, the rest were interior changes.

The initials 'TJ' do not actually stand for anything, other than a way to separate year models (YJ, TJ, JK, etc.). The last Jeep initials that actually stood for anything were CJ (Civilian Jeep).

a TJ is the model designation for wranglers made from 1996-2006. the wrangler succeeded the cj in 1987 and from then till 1995 it was the wrangler YJ. the current wrangler is a JK. so 44-86=CJ 87-95=YJ 97-06=TJ 07-now=JK There wasn't a 1996 JEEP WRANGLER. The Civilian Jeep or CJ was put to pasture in 1987. The "new" jeep was born and named Wrangler. The YJ Jeep Wrangler is a smaller, lighter, and has square headlights. Jeepers of the world said "Nay!" on square headlights. Hence, after the last YJ with square headlights was created the YJ was no longer made. The TJ Jeep Wrangler is mostly the same Jeep but it has round headlights. THEY ARE INITIALS FOR WRANGLER MODELS Jeep Wrangler TJ and YJ are the initials for Wrangler models. As per the official information disclosed by Jeep, TJ and YJ don't essentially mean anything, though many of the Jeep fans strongly believe that TJ stands for "tough Jeep", YJ for "yuppie Jeep", CJ for "Civilian Jeep" so on and so forth.

The Aislin AX5 is what it has. The first Jeep to get the trans was the 1984 XJ Cherokee Jeep, it has been used ever since and can be found in the 1984 to 2006 Jeep XJ, YJ & TJ models.

1997-2006 are TJ1997-2006 are TJ

A jeep tj, in 2010 can be bought from 5500 in excellent condition or 3500 in a drivable condition.

Will a 304 engine fit in a 1998 TJ jeep wrangler?

Yes. The 1997 Jeep hard top can be replaced by any jeep hard top from 1997 to 2005.

Tj was the body code from 1997-2006.

I Do not have jeep or one does not have an airbag
