wrecked jeep

alright i have an 81 cj-8 scrambler with a 258 and a t-18 tranny. have have a dana 44 and a corporate 14 bolt with lockers and all that stuff 36 inch swampers but the reason i am making this post is because my friend just totaled his 99 jeep grand cherokee with a v-8 he says that i can buy it from him for just the price that the insurance wants him to buy it back for. i am wandering if it is worth it to do an engine swap and how much that would cost also i would like to know what i can salvage from it and how much i could get for seats and what not i would also like to get the stereo out of it. the only thing messed up with it is the doors and windows and roof and hood basically the entire exterior.

I ran into a bunch of problems just trying to swap a '99 4.0 from a Cherokee into an '86 CJ7. The computer and wiring was going to be a major headache and the fuel rail was going to require an external regulator. Then there was the second O2 sensor. I decided to steal the head, manifolds, cam, and lifters and put them on my 258. I would do some investigation before I spent much money on it. Find out about the price and availability of transmission adapters, motor mounts, and wiring harnesses. Will the radiator work or will it have to be replaced? If you can make it work I think that it would be a neat swap. By the way, which V8 is it?
