Front wheel drive vs rear wheel drive, totally different set up, plus there is no room under the hood for that v6. I would hope for a 1.8L turbo with 200hp and 210 torque. That's my wish.

It can be done but will be cheaper to buy a brand new JK then that swap will cost after all is said and done.Biggest cost will be the labor and getting all the computers to work.

OK, just out of curiosity - why?
