V6 magnum swap

So my friends dad has a 2004-ish dodge pick up with 4wd and a v6 magnum in it. How possible/easily do you think it could be swapped into my 91 xj? any thoughts?

The same amount of work as a V8 or anythiong else you would think of swapping in. Besides what gain are you going to get, I would guess the power is about the same.

DON'T DO IT! It's not worth the work or money. For less then you would spend to swap it the 3.9 v6 you can buy a good used 4.0L and just replace you engine in one weekend.
