Question Jeep Steering Boxes

Hey guys I'm pretty new to the site, however i was wondering if you could help me with a question i have. I'm looking for a steering box for my 95 Wrangler and i found a low mileage one on a 97 Cherokee and i was wondering if these boxes were the same and if the cherokee box would work on my YJ. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks John

Happy B-day.

But, although the boxes are the same, the mounting may not be.

I picked up a box from a 89 Comanche, expecting a perfect swap. Well, it bolted in just fine....all three bolts.

I found the comanche box only uses 3 mounting bolts, unlike my my YJ, which of course uses 4.

I have continued to use it with no problems, but I will at least add a brace if I keep it for the long haul.

3 bolt or 4 bolt is the same thing for the most part. I have run a 3 bolt for the last 10 years and have been able to tear it off the frame once due to my poor design. A few gussets later and no problem.
A steering box brace is always a good idea though.
