It would take ALOT of fabrication. It basically doesnt not fit, the biggest problem is the radiator up front I beleive, I think you would have to extend the length of the hood...I have not seen one in a WJ before, and I think that is the reason.
The only way you would be able to get it properly is if you are really really good at that stuff, or you paid a shop to do it, probably in the ball park of 10-15 grand for the labor, maybe more.
Theres a company that puts bigger engines in jeeps, I forget the name of it, but they can get a 5.7 in the TJ, but no go on a WJ.
Same way you can build a 2.4l I4 to be more powerful than a V8...

While at dealership today, I asked in parts about a new crate 4.7 engine. They told me they are not available, can only get a remanufactured 4.7 for $5995.00.
They did say, I could get a new block and have them put all new parts in it to make a new engine. LOL Now that would be very expensive indeed.
They are crazy for charging so much for remanufactured engine with only 3 year 36k mile warranty. I can buy one else where for around $3500.00 and get 100k mile warranty.
