Putting my 91 Jeep Cherokee motor in my 79 CJ5

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to put my 1991 Jeep Cherokee straight 6 4.0 motor in my CJ5 Jeep?

Steph0250.....Welcome to the Jeep Forum, tons of good stuff here for your CJ5. SlikRic already provided a link to the best thread on the forum to answer your question.

Do you already have a '91 4.0 to install? The reason I asked is, one needs to be sure to grab certain items, mainly electrical, to make the engine work. Hopefully you already knew that.

Good Luck and post some pictures of your rig when you get time.
