XJ fuel tank in a YJ?

I am in the process of putting a 4.6L stroker in my 89yj. I know I have to swap the fuel pump and fuel lines from the donor XJ to the YJ. The fuel tank in the donor is plastic but the tank in the YJ is metal. What is the best solution? Can I just swap tanks? Will the donor fuel pump fit in the metal tank?

The doner pump should fit in the metal tank, IIRC. The XJ tank will not fit under the YJ.
