you could do it, but it'll be very expensive. a fair amount of fabrication is involved as there are no provisions for the associated equipment for a manual in the wj. no provision for a master cylinder, no pedals that will work out of the box, etc...
you'd need a computer reprogram to get around the MIL and drivability issues that obdii vehicles have with such a swap.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
