ZJ 5-Speed Swap Questions

So my buddy and i have decided we want to swap a 5-speed into his ZJ... Eventually. It's a 1994 Limited 5.2L with 249. We plan on swapping the TCase too as the VC probably won't last. We found a used NV3500 for $200 with pressure plate and good clutch and it comes with throwout bearing and shifter. It's from an 04 Silverado 4.3L. Now will that bolt up to the 5.2? I doubt it. What would we have to change to make it work? Just bell housing? Is it even worth trying? I don't see ANY dodge NV3500's online around us besides this one. I can try calling JY's.

I can post the link to the one for sale if needed. Thanks in advance

If its a NV3500 from a Chevy it won't fit a Jeep. It has to come out of a Dodge. If it's a NV3550 then you can change the bell housing to fit the 5.2L.
