Youd have to get a new transmission, PCM for both, and new motor mounts. Im sure it can be done, but it would be a lot of work.

Do some searching on Google.

That's gonna be more work than you are imagining. You'd need a bigger radiator, larger exhaust, and that's in addition to all the parts mentioned above.

It would probably be easier and cheaper to sell your current Jeep for one with a V8.
