cherokee engine swap

I just bought a '93 yj with the 4.0 and AX15. It has about 210,000 miles so I'm not sure how much longer the drivetrain is going to hold together. My question is: will a 4.0 and AX15 out of a '91-95 cherokee be a straight swap? Would my current t-case bolt up? It seems to be easy to find used cherokees with relatively low mileage (at least compared to 210,000 ) for fairly cheap. I've done a little searching, but found no definitive answers. Any info or links would be great. Thanks.

Not for sure but it should.

The t-case has a different spline count.

But yes you can make it work.

You can use the t-case out of the cherokee also or use a adapter.
