tj from cj engine swap

I have an 83 cj-7 that was gonna be restored but funds ran out. I also have a 97 tj. I wanna know if i can swap the tj's I4 for the Cj's I6 with out changing the transmition and mounts and all that. I know the electrical will have to be worked and the fuel injector. just wondering how hard it would all be.

It would be a lot harder than selling the CJ for parts and buying some gears to pep up the four-banger.
