Xj body swapping?? HELP????

Hi, i have a 84' xj (cherokee chief w/ 2 dr), i got it for free when i was 15 years old and it has no motor and been sitting in my backyard for 12 years...
Now I am moving to a new home and landlord doesn t allow me to keep non- running vehicles... My dad was saying maybe i should buy a running jeep, do body swapping and i found a nice running 92' xj... I want to ask some expert jeep mechanical on this forum and see if its easy to be done in less than 3 months???
Please give any advices or infos that would help... thanks in advance!!

it'd be easier to do a motor swap... and cheaper.

Why don't you part out the 84 xj and keep the 92 if you buy it.

Yeah, that's what i noticed that they are build in with the frame... And yeah i guess i would be parting it out from 92' into my 84' because i has so much passions for my 84' cherokee chief w/ two doors that are hardly to be found out there...
Someone was saying that someone would buy my chief for over 1k even if its only body w/ nothing else..

Again i want to thanks for some feedbacks, now i know what to do next!!!
