any xj parts work for my yj?

I have an 89 Cherokee that I'm parting out for scrap. I am curious if anyone knows of parts on it that are usable for my 91 yj build?

if its got a chrysler 8.25 rear end its worth keeping, not quite as strong as an 8.8, but good enough for 33's or 35's

Although if it is not the same gear ratio it is better to just go pull an 8.8 to match your YJ. Especially if you have an 8.25 with open diffs. Get a posi 8.8
