Grand Cherokee 5.9L into TJ

So I picked up a 98 GC to part out the other day. It happens to have the not so common 5.9L in it that has been chipped and bored with just over 100k on it. Never really thought about an engine swap before but with this beautiful engine dropped into my lap i figure its worth looking into. Ive searched around and most of the 5,9 swaps go from 4 bangers to durango 5.9s. How much difference is there between between that and a 6cyl to Grand 5.9 swap? Im no engine guru by any means so this is gonna be a huge learning experience. Has any one done this swap between these 2 motors? Or have found any good write ups on it? I know it has been done and Adv Adapters and novak will be a help. Any info in the right direction is appreciated.

I think they did a simular swap in JP Mag a few months ago.

Since I picked up the grand, its in such good shape I think Im gonna try to sell it as a whole and pass on the engine swap... The money that it ll bring in is prob gonna go towards continuing to beef up my front axle and possibly and atlas... Just ordered all the parts for my 4-link threw Atrec, Ballistics and Currie so with that on the table for the winter pulling off an engine swap is just too much. If I do end up parting it Ill be pulling the engine and selling it on here and the other major forums... Thanks for the responses anyway
