Frame Differences

Anybody know if there are major differences between a 97 4wd 3.0L and 4.0L frame...or is the only significant frame difference just between the 2wd and 4wd frames?

i dont think there is any frame difference at all. maybe just motor mounts.
there shouldnt be to much, if any difference in the 2wd and 4wd frames either.

Sweetness. All I have found in the past is that the 2wd and 4wd have completely different engine cross members.

Anyway, thanks!

I didn't say it wouldn't work if you want to spend the time on it, but in this case it is more trouble than I care to go through.
