85 Cheeroke Tranny Swap

I have a 1994 Jeep Wrangler with the Ax5 model transmission in it. This tranny is bad and my friend has a 1985 Cherokee he is parting out. He lives a ways away and I was wondering if anyone would know weather I could make the swap or not? The Cherokee is either a 2.5l-V4 or a 4.0-V6. What tranny comes in these rigs and would they bolt up to a 94 YJ transfer case and bell housing?

Thanx, Brandon

Re: 85 Cheeroke Tranny Swap

The 85 XJ could have a 2.8L V6 or a 2.5L 4 cyl or even a 2.1L Renault turbo diesel. Trans choices were on the auto side the TF904 and for the manual the AX4 and 5. So theoreticly you could posibly use his trans. As for bellhousings and input shafts etc I have no idea. Anyway thats all I know.
