Default Difference between 90 and 95 XJs?

Ive got a 2WD 95 and am in the market for a 4x4 XJ but its difficult to find one close to my year.

I am aware there are some years to avoid like the 99/2000 (correct me if those are the wrong years, I forgot. LOL) because of the head cracking?

But what about 90 to 95, is there anything wrong with these years and how different are they from my 95, meaning will I see the same things I have already fixed on my 95 such as the Trans cooler lines, leafs, coils springs, muffler, Nss, Motor mounts, Trans mount?

I may go the 4X4 Grand Cherokee / ZJ route because there are tons of them available on CL But I would really like another XJ close to the same year as mine.

Thanks.

'90 is still Renix IIRC. 91-95 should be the same pretty much.

The cracked head years are 2000-2001. 99 is the prime year to buy. Options they had on the 2000's but without the crappy head problems.

I think it's really subjective. I consider late 1996 to be the best. 29 spline shafts, first year of ODBII, stock driveshaft is the longest on XJs so you can run up to 4.5" of lift with no vibes, airbags and personally I like the older body style way better.

So that said, if you're looking in the 1991-1996 years, I'd suggest a 96, late 96 would be even better for the 29 spline
