I just purchased a 1996 jeep cherokee sport and have no clue if it's a XJ or CJ. How do I know and what is the difference?

THANKS!!!!. I'm learning a lot from you folks. These jeeps are awesome.

that's correct unless you want to get real technicall. the CJ was the jeep before the wrangler.

so CJ (shorter axles, slightly taller, very rounded body)
then YJ (wrangler with square headlights)
then TJ (wrangler with round headlights)

and XJ (cherokee)
