Engine Swap

Hello guys. My son has a 1996 Cherokee with the 4.0 six in it. The engine is shot. I have located a 4.0 engine from a 97 Cherokee that I am going to buy. Is this a like for like engine swap between these two years or will I need the computer from the 97? I appreciate any help. Thanks, Troy

I think DistortedTJ is is right, but you might want to post this question in a cherokee specific forum. Try Jeep Forum - Jeep Enthusiast Network. they have a cherokee section i think. good luck!
