5spd cherokee? I guess Ive never heard of one. It should be an interesting swap, GO FOR IT!

that 90 cherokee is a renix era jeep. nothing that wrong with it, but its not H O, and the wiring and computer system is a little out dated. i've owned a few and my mj is a 90. also gotta check local laws, cuz some areas you can't put an older engine swap into a new vehicle.

also, i would consider trying to find an ho donor. you're on the right track, a donor is the best way to go. and if you've been looking, and thats all thats come up, jump all over it. but if you can find a 91 and later, that would be better.
