Regardless it can be done, I guarantee you received a piss poor education and probably came from 2 parents that were first cousins. Its ok though because you used a google search to verify your logic about all things jeep related.
the username is obviously a play on words. and you're right, the six years I spent configuring, ordering, selling, and studying the entire Chrysler brand, along with doing my own major electrical modifications have no bearing on my knowledge of the product. I simply know all that I know from a quick five minute search engine. you got me good on that one.

I guess i'll crawl back to my aunt mom and uncle dad who live in the back country woods. good looking out for me, though.

BTW, would you mind explaining to the class how a CANBUS system works, without doing a google search?

Another member and myself worked with a dealership and Jeep Engineering on trying to change a Patriot FD II over to an Autostick. Outside of not being able to get in in the 'L' to engage the off road programing, which could have been by-passed using an electrical switch, it just wouldn't work. We had all of the correct wiring fabricated, the correct shifter and we used my VIN for the the attempt but it doesn't go with the 'Off Road' mode. If there was a complete parts car and everything was in good working order along with the correct VIN then yes it could be possible but you would have so much labor into it would not be worth it IMHO. I'd rather get a V-6 Dodge Journey engine to swap into mine but that's another story.

the next version should come with a 2.8l version of the pentastar, or similar engine with at least 200ft/lbs of torque.

3.6, 283 HP and 260 Lb/Ft still sounds more better.

But I doubt there is enough room under the hood is the only problem.

Yup, that's a issue as well as the extra weight.

the thing here is going to be the computers. the two cars need to be equipped EXACTLY the same. for example: if the donor car had bluetooth, and the FWD car didn't, this could cause the computer to get "confused" when it went to look for the Bluetooth module in the car and didn't find it. that's why I said you would have to replace literally EVERY component in the car with pieces from the old one. this means down to the gauge cluster and radio (which are VIN protected now a days) in order for this to even become feasible. and that's assuming that the wiring between the two cars is the same, which it may not be. have two cars from two different model years? the swap just became impossibly more difficult.

NO WAY. IF you really think Bluetooth or not matters you don't have a clue.

um...you might want to back off before claiming I don't know what i'm talking about. when installing my Bluetooth module (mind you, a factory-sold accessory for the car), the module was installed improperly, and the entire car started going haywire. sunroof opening and closing, headlights turning on and off, radio going on and out, one of the windows went down, etc. the whole car was possessed by the devil. so yes, I do indeed know what i'm talking about, and my example was a valid one, with several hundred other examples that would further back up my original point. so, before claiming that someone is wrong, you might want to consider the fact that I actually know a little more about the electrical system of these cars than the average poster does.

Dude.

You float around so much it is hard to follow you. One minute you speak in absolutes then it is well something was installed improperly and it caused problems. They are not the same thing.

Just give it up. I am tired of fighting. You think what you want and I will think what I want. Neither of us will ever change the other's mind so why keep at it?

And for the record. What I was saying/meant was it doesn't matter if the donor car had BT and the OP's doesn't or vice versa. You simply disable or enable that feature as needed. You make it sound like if one had it and the other doesn't the swapped parts will never work and that is just false. You can add BT(Uconnect )to vehicles that never had it and you can also disable that programming as well. Damn man.
