ford 4.0 in a yj

i picked up a 2000 exploder for 200 bucks with a bad tranny for the 8.8 rear and was going to part out the rest to up the funds for my yj. Before i sold the good running motor i figured i would ask if there was a good cheap tranny and tcase option for this motor in my yj . im guessing not after 5 hours of forum searching .

I am no expert but the engine swap might be a tough one.

You gonna run the disc brakes from the 8.8 on the YJ?
