motor options for CJ 5?

I purchased a 79 cj 5 about 3 months ago and restored/customized

I have a 4.0HO FI out of a 93 wrangler in it now with the T-18 trans.

I have heard of chevy small blocks being put in and ford 5.0's

I was wanting to drop a Newer Mopar Hemi motor into mine.
Something with Fuel injection and good power.
I don't believe this is a common practice yet so I am sure motor mounts will need to be fabricated and so on. I know I will need a new tranny.

anyone hear of this being done, if so how difficult or any better ideas?
