xj vs. grand cherokee warn bumper question

I've got an 89 xj. Found a warn winch bumper to fit an 01-04 grand cherokee on ebay. it's close to home and the price is right. does anyone know about how it compares or what kind of fab it would take to make it work on my xj. warn tech support was worthless. any help is appreciated. thanks. Jody

I'd suggest you get a tape measure and go looking for an WJ. The frame is different, at least in the front. I did some measuring concerning frame width, steering box, and radiator. The frame rails are wider, and the steering box bolts-up with 4 bolts, in a pattern entirely different than an Xj.
