97 cherokee front axle into 98 grand cherokee

The front axle in my 98 Grand Cherokee is bad, but my friend has a wrecked 97 Cherokee with a good front axle that he said I could have if it fits.. Will I be able to swap the Cherokee axle to my Grand Cherokee easily, or can i swap the guts over? Thanks

If it's a Cherokee I don't think sooo...I'm not a 100% though.

i own both two xj's and an 5.2l zj.
front axles are both dana 30 it should work just fine, only difference in mine are the d 30's in my xj are high pinion, dana 30 in my zj are low pinion. they will enter change , however the problem u are going to run into is that i promise you your gear ratios are different. the xj was probably a 4.0 truck running a 3.55 ratio. so if you swap axles u will have to change ther gears out in it to match that of your zj. i don't kmow what yours is running, but my zj ( being a v8 unit) runs 3.73 gears.
hope this helps

Yup I 2nd woodie on that. It may be cheaper to locate an axle from a bone yard and just do an even swap. Gears can be expensive and complicated if you've never tackled that

So what was the outcome on this? Did you locate another axle?
