Engine Swap?????

I have the four cyclinder jeep engine, and I was wondering what I would need to switch it to the 6 cyclinder engine?? I dont want the v8 because of the gas milage. Would I need to switch the engine, transmition and ECU????
And how much would it cost??
Also I'm getting a 2.5 inch lift and I was wondering what size of tires I could fit in there?? And how wide can I go???
THANKS FOR HELPING OUT A NEWBIE.

Just having transmission work done and trying to find the parts, I know that if you go from the 4 banger to the 6 cyl. you HAVE TO CHANGE THE TRANSMISSION!!!! It is an extremely expensive project and you might as well just look around for a different Jeep (unless you are like me and will never part because of sentimental reasons). Price considering, I'm looking at a V8, axle swap, tranny, T-Case, the worx... Good luck...

Drinking for the cause.

with 2.5 lift you'll be able to fit 32s with some rubbing when flexed. 31s without rubbing.

How much would it cost to do the swap?? How much for the engine and transmition?? I can put the engine in with some help. Would I also need a new ECU???? Would I be able to keep the swap under 3k???
