GC 4.7 swap

Has anyone seen any write ups for doing a 4.7 swap from a grand Cherokee, ram, or Dakota into an 05 or 06 tj/lj?

Good luck.

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.

Okay thanks will do. My 4.0 is starting to burn quite a lot of oil and on the off chance that it goes I just want to figure out my options. I did a 4.2 to 4.0 swap on my old 87 yj and we got it done but cost way more then it should have due to the fact I did all the work my self and had never attempted something of that magnitude. So now my parents are pretty weary of me doing the swap on such a newer jeep. I know swaps aren't cheap so if it goes ill probably end up with another 4.0 which is hate to do.
