yes, my 89 has a 97+ interior and drive line. You have to change it all...wiring harness, controllers, basically strip the MJ and start throwing Cherokee parts on it. The dash is not a swap, you will need to cut brackets off of cherokee and weld on MJ firewall. Check out comanche club, their is a few builds that will help you decide if this is the way you want to go. Once you commit, you are committed.

So I ended up doing this over the weekend. I didn't have to make any brackets...

The dash is just resting in place. I haven't bolted it to the support.
