I believe 1994-2001 XJ Cherokees 1994-2003 Grand Cherokees 1997-2005 Wrangler TJ's with the Dana 30 from axle are identical as far as internals. As long as the shafts are 27 spline on the XJ and the TJ it will work.

Default Cardan or CV

A Cardan Joint and a CV (Constant Velocity) are two different things. The upper drive shaft contains a Double Cardan Joint. CV joints are found on the axles. Early Cherokees don't have CV joints. A Cardan Joint is simply a Universal Joint (U joint). A CV joint slides inside the joint to maintain the same acceleration and torque through the bend and is most often covered with a rubber boot to keep the dirt out.

00-01 XJ, 93-98 ZJ, 97-06 TJ axles are identical (LP axles). 99-04 WJ front axles are still LP but wider.
