    New front axle, front driveshaft. I can't tell you about the wiring though.

    You should be able to pick up a whole cherokee for a couple hundred to use as a donor - here's a 96 near me for $400

    I'd go that route, as you'll likely need a bit more stuff, like the shift linkage, shifter, and console.
