this just started on my rig. anyone know how long it will last once the squeaking starts? odds are the local dealer won't have it in stock and i am leaving town for the holidays. the xj is my only vehicle at the moment.....

mine just started as well. i'm going to pull the bracket and try and get the bearing out... if not i will cut the end off and run a different belt and get a electric fan.

This may be what you are looking for (ebay). The bracket part number is 53011002 from 96 to 99 (that's all I checked). There's a thread on NAXJA about the bearing replacement.

my local dealer didn't have the hub. i asked if they could locate one and overnight it to me and they said if it isn't in one of "their" warehouses they can't get it. i called jeep and they forwarded me to a dealer in new Hampshire, i think they were called lambert? anyways the part was $200 and i paid $100 to have it overnight shipped to me. so it cost me $300. it fixed my squeak. the $200 surprised me after reading this thread.

Just adding on to this (was just searching for a solution for mine.. About cried when I saw the $300 price tag). The part number for the hub bearing is 808129. You can find it on rock auto for next to nothing... http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=2771188&jnid=472&jpid=0 and I find a video on removal and install. Hope it helps.

You should be able to remove the fan mounting bracket and have a machine shop renew the bearings on it if all else fails.

Probably right. That's a decent option in the event that the hub bearing supply goes south. I'm sure it would be cheaper than replacing the actual bracket, given the price tag. I think the replacement hub bearing is probably the cheapest option though.
