Need help with engine swap

Hello, I am new to Jeep's. Got my daughter a 1999 Grand Cherokee, and it threw a rod 2 weeks later. I found a motor from a 2002 Grand Cherokee for a good price but need to know for sure if it will work in the '99 or at least what would need to be done to make it work, or should I just keep looking for one from a '99? Thanks for any input here.

What was the old motor and what is the 2002 motor? Both 4.0s or 4.7s? Or one of each. You need to give more info...
