I've got a 97' 4 cylinder wrangler w/ 5 speed tranny. I'm needing a new transfer case and front differentail housing. I found what I need in a 95' wrangler. Will it work in my jeep. I need to know before I buy it. Please Help

The axle will not.

The transfer case will if the donor YJ is also a 4-cyl 5-speed however I would keep looking for one from a TJ. The YJ models lack a seal on the output that keeps in the t-case lube if you remove the driveshaft. The TJ models have this seal and it's a better design.

So...you might want to pass on the YJ you've located.

Thanks for the Advise! I think I may have found one @ my local junk yard. I plan on rebuilding it before I put it in so it should work.
