Get rid of my 2.5 for a V8.

I have a 1998 TJ with a 2.5 4 cylinder and want to put a V8 in it. Any suggestions for relative easy swap?

thats an option too, use the search function, there are write ups on many swaps, common easy one is pull the 5.3 outta any chevy silverado and use some aftermarket engine mounts (google it, millions of options) if you dont wanna fab them and itll drop in, just search, its been done so much, people will have write ups and lists of every single part youll need to do the swap
