Should work for the 4.0 too, there's just no hydraulic fan so you might have some more room to work. Also there should only be one return line on the reservoir.

Hamilton5 has it correct, you need to use a power steering fluid that meets Chrysler MS5931 spec, I have used valvoline PS fluid from the parts store, it says ms5931 right on the bottle!

Some older steering systems used atf, but now they all seem to have a different spec. In fact I found out the WK's fluid is even harder to find.

Other brands may meet it too, Valvoline was just the big name brand at the store I was at.
