    Hello everyone. My 2004 Jeep Liberty has a bent rear housing so I was able to purchase a 2002 Jeep Liberty thinking I could use it for parts. I found out that the engine and transmission are not compatible with my ‘04, but is the axle in the ‘02 not interchangeable with my ‘04? Thanks.

    Depends on the gearing, should have 3.73s
    But then 02s have drum brakes, 04 disc, .................

    Gearing should be the same since they are both 3.7 liter engines right? And as far as the 2002 being drums can I switch over my disc brakes from one axle to the other?
