new motor swap

My motor is blown up and I need a new one. I'd like to have some information on doing a 4.0 swap. I have a 4.2, but what I want to know is, should I stay with the 4.2 or go with a 4.0. What does it entails, and where a good place to get the motor. Finally, if I go with the 4.0, what are my issues, and where are my difficulties going to lie with the swap.

Thanks ahead of time for the help and info.
