    I couldn't seem to find this one by searching...

    Which Cherokee steering shaft will work on a later style steering box; the 88-96 one or the 97-01 one? Or, are they basically the same?

    Can't help ya, but I'm going to ask the opposite of that, which one will work on the older steering box?

    I pulled my shaft from a 86 cherokee. I used it on an older steering box, but I understand that this is hit or miss, because some of the older boxes have larger splined input shafts. The newer straight axle trucks all have the smaller input shaft on the steering box's from what I have seen. I had to find a newer steering column that had the square output shaft, as the earier columns had splined outputs. My truck is a 74. My wife used to have a 97 Cherokee, and the steering shaft on it looked like it wouldn't work on our trucks, but I can't verify that.
