79 cj 258 put into 95 yj

Ok I need help, I drive a 95 yj with a 2.5l in it as a daily driver. I bought a really nice frame and tub from a 95 yj that was setup for a 4cyl. Now I also got a 79 cj 258 that I want to put in there. Including tranny transfer case and axles. I need to know what motor mounts to use for this and if I have to move the 4cyl frame mounts. Website links would be very helpful for parts. O'Reilys auto parts is close to me and Advanced auto parts also. Thank you For your time

Save yourself some grief and check your local laws on this--many states require same year or newer on engine swaps to maintain equivalent emission standards.
