Will it work?

i have a 1989 jeep wrangler islander with a 4.0 inline but an automatic tranny. I was wondering if it is possible to take a cherokee manual transmission and hook it up to my inline six. The reason im asking is because i noticed that the engines are the same and they use the same manual transmission the AX15. So would this work? Also is the bellhousing the same so it doesnt create to many problems if i try to do the switch. I mainly need a parts car for everything and finding a 4.0 inline with manual tranny is way cheaper than a wrangler. Thanks for your help!
