I HAVE A 2000 JEEP CHEROKEE GRAND LARADO...I AM LOOKING FOR A REPLACEMENT REAREND..IT IS A TWO WHEEL DRIVE 4.0 6CY.AUTOMATIC TRANS.WHAT GEAR RATIO IS IN THIS MODEL? WHAT YEARS WILL INTERCHANGE WITH MY JEEP? CAN I PUT A4WHEEL DRIVE REAREND IN MY JEEP IF THE GEAR RATIO IS THE SAME? DOES THE REAR END NEED TO HAVE THE SAME TYPE OF BRAKE SYSTEM AS MINE? CAN I REPLACE THE ENTIRE DRIVE TRAIN TRANSMISSION REAR END BRAKE SYSTEM AND ALL IN MY TWO WHEEL DRIVE WITH A 4WHEEL DRIVE DRIVE TRAIN IF IT WILL MATCH UP TI MY MOTOR?

Welcome to the forum. Any XJ rear end will do, but you should stick with the 97 and up Chrysler 8.25 like you have. It has a 3.54 ratio. And yes, you can change over to 4WD, but it is good to have a donor rig. All the stuff will bolt in

Whoops, my bad. I didn't see the Grand when I read it for some reason. We usually refer to your rig as a Grand Cherokee, not the other way around. Anyway, you can use either the Dana 35 rear axle which you now have, or upgrade to the Dana 44A which came in the V8 models. Axle ratio is 3.73

The rear ends interchange. Dude, punctuation please. If you are thinking of making it a 4wd, you will need a good trans that is a 4wd trans. It needs to be able to bolt a transfer case to the tail housing

Just make sure your donor rig is a 99-04 Grand Cherokee. The axles are considerably wider than the Cherokee
