Maybe. it depends on the engine and computer and transmission.
I have transplanted an 8valve 89 motor and wiring harness into a 96 body. I just had to move over the harness (including the rear one) and the dash instruments.
Of course if you have to pass ODB2 emissions then you may be screwed.

If you have the exact same engine in the 94 you should be able to swap it in. I don't recall off the top of my head when the 16v changes happened. just take a picture of the engine connections with you when you look at the 94 and take a look.

The '95 16v will be a direct swap if the '94 you're looking at has a 16v engine. The 4wd Trackers had the 16v in '94 and '95. The 2wd models had the 8v engine. In '96 they all had the 16v engine.

Yep... what he said...

The issue is with the 94-95's vs 96- is the OBDI vs OBDII. That's why the electronics won't work. The 96 has the crank sensor and a different Speed Sensor (in the dash) I believe... which are important for the OBDII system to function correctly. Especially if'n you have an auto tranny

The 1994-1995's (16valve) are OBDI and do not have the crank sensor and thereby should work in your application.

One question I do have tho... how did you get the harness to connect? Did you just use the engine? I wonder if you could just jerry-rig the crank sensor to the early engine to get the electronics to work?

Can't you swap the crank sensor, sump and oil pump across to the earlier engine?

Edit: sump = oil pan
