    I’m looking at a 6.5 Meyers to mount on my 93 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While looking at the Meyers website application it lists Cherokee but NOT Grand Cherokee. What is the difference between a Cherokee & Grand? I know that ball joints, tie rods and other suspension parts are the same. Other then the Cherokee has leaf springs in the rear and the Grand having coils. I plan on installing a small lift on my Grand to help with the weight of the plow. Will the Cherokee set up mount up on the Grand?

    The grand and the Cherokee share F axles and engine. even the engine has different mounting holes for accessories. Some of the grands had different ball joins, brakes and they have different frames, r axles, transfer cases.....

    The cherokee and the grand cherokee are completely different animals. They do share the same 4.0L motors, similar suspensions, and drivetrain. But the uni-bodies are completely different... so the answer to your question is no it will not bolt on.
